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

IT NEEDS A REALLY GOOD CLEAN UP AND I WILL REPLACE A COUPLE OF THINGS BUT IT IS IN PERFECT WORKING ORDER AND I CANT SEE ANY PHYSICAL REASONS WHY I SHOULD THINK OTHER WISE.
SO HERE STARTS ANOTHER CHAPTER IN MY LIFE AND FINALLY IT IS GOING TO BE AN EXCITING ONE!
