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

Two great things in one day

1) sat at the Long Gallery today with the mini print exhibition and I made 4 sales and there were lots of visitors and one interested person that organises concert of classical music and would like Allan to play the piano for them sometime soon .

2) Brian Ritchie came to St Vigils, where Allan is the music teacher and did a talk and a demonstration of the traditional Japanese bamboo flute, it was wonderful and he really had a great re pore with the kids, what a great guy! Thanks Brian if you ever read this!
