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

Another busy day printing

I have been going into printing / designing over drive in the last couple of days, I have two market looming so I have been printing like a mad thing
The Market at the Masonic Hall in Hobart, see the last post for more details, and the Beach Market at Blackmans Bay Hall on the 29th August 2009
Both markets showcase a fantastic array of locally made craft, art, clothing, jewellery and truck load of other great stuff.
Please come and support your local artisans the prices are more than reasonable and they have lots of great stuff that would be ideal for...... dare I say Christmas pressies !
