Welcome to Ruby Victoria Letterpress & printmaking

Here you will find photos of all my original hand carved linocut prints and letterpress printing.
A commercial printer by trade a printmaker by choice.
I specialize in original handcarved lino block prints with a bit of letterpress thrown in for good measure.
All printed on antique printing machines with that unmistakable bite into the paper that you can only get with letterpress printing

The work that I do is not created on a computer everything is hand drawn then hand carved out of lino then printed one impression at a time on my tabletop letterpress machine

I do not use polymer which limits me somewhat in regards to type but I love to use traditional methods in my printing that involve handset type and hand carved designs and I think this is what make my work totally Original and Unique to what other people are doing right now and it also meaning everything I make is an original work of art
I love what I do and love to share it with others that are interested

Hobart waterfront

Yup the Steve Irwin was in port today with all its battle scars, they were having tours of the ship all weekend if I had of known I would have taken Christopher on for a look around but we didn't get the chance.
Allan, roo and I went down to the docks just on a whim so I could get some pics to draw from I especially like the little birds on the cray pots they look terribly sweet all sitting there together ,I really like cray pots in not sure why I think it might be the weaving pattern or something I just think they are so beautiful to look at .
