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

an old lino

AN oldie but a goodie! This a very personal print it obviously depicts 2 dogs, one with a halo the other with little horns and a spikes tale, at the time I did this print I was married and my outlaws had a very strange and strained relationship with my then husband, they seemed to compete with each other endlessly and were not very nice to me hense the angel and devil dogs, yes you guessed it they were apparent christians and we were the heathens no matter what we did, i could have been the mother mary and it wouldnt have been good enough, it got so rediculious that when we got our dog Endo they adopted max off a friend of ours and the "my dog is better, smarter" ect began,YAWN!!
I am so glad i dont have to put up with their shit anymore !! but i still love this print!
