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

A lovely Surprise

Got a lovely surprise last night when I logged on to my flikr web page I had received an email from a lady who is the administrator for a website called Schmap.
Email said: I am writing to let you know that one of your photos has been short-listed for inclusion in the eighth edition of our Schmap Hobart Guide, to be published at the end of this month.
Schmap is an International online travel guide and map site where travellers can go and see images of places and things to see and do when the are planning a trip.
They chose the photo I took of all the prints from the Hunter Island Press mini print sale exhibition I was involved in at the long Gallery in Salamanca Art Centre.
I don't get paid for the use of the image but hey who cares people still see my photo and hopefully they will follow the link to my site, So I'm happy for the free publicity, so now I just have to wait and see if I get through the final selection process !
