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

moving letterpress and printmaking to central Hobart

I am super excited as I have just found some where for my printing studio to go to get all my stuff out of the living room and kitchen and stop it from taking over the entire house.
I will start the moving tomorrow

The wonderful Pru Quarmby has allowed me to take possession of a little part of the huge building that holds her art supplied business .
Bibiani paper and textiles
3 Church street Hobart

You will be able to fine me working away up the side of the building through the red double doors that use to be a little meeting room its a bit draughty but hey I am in no position to complain and beside printers need an airy place to work I will just need to rug up till it gets a little warmer.

This is all abit sudden so there won't be any flash signage just follow your nose and come say hi

I think I will organise some kind of sign to put on the door when I am about .

Everyone is more than welcome to come have a look and come have a natter
