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

I am finally an Aunty.... YIPEEEE
yippee finally my brother had hid first child today, Louise his wife gave Birth to Isabella Louise this afternoon via c-section, she weighed just over 8 pound and is 52cm in length.
Is funny Isabella looks just like Ruby when she was born but I guess people say all babies look the same when they are first born.
Anyway I am so excited about being an Aunty relle for the first time I never thought it would happen, good on ya Louise and Ashley,Congratulations !
I find it very sweet seeing my brother holding his little girl i never thought i would see the day that he would have a baby and remembering how nervous he was when he held my first child at the hospital , he was terrified hehe he looks alot more comfortable with Isabella , he isn't holding her out at arms length like he did Christopher !!
