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

Anyone interested in a relief printing workshop?

I am thinking about holding some relief printing workshops for the interested locals

The idea is to have small groups of people come to our home learn about printing cut and print a block of their own, We will provide a lunch, Allan the family chef will cook a beautiful gourmet meal to keep everyone going then back to printing your cards or what every you want to print ........I need a show of hands who might be interested in taking part to give me some idea of numbers.

I have posted this on my face book page as well. http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=840854833&ref=name#/profile.php?id=840854833&ref=profile

so hopefully people will see this and be interested .

Just a bit of fun meeting like minded people in the community and maybe drum up some interest in printmaking and Ruby Victoria letterpress and Badalassi cucina.
