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 little job completed

I just wanted to share these with everyone as I can't believe how wonderful they turned out.
Transparent ink can be a bit of a trial at times but in this case it was a dream and worked incredibly well.
I have all sort of ideas running through my head now, ways to use subtle transparent inks, so many ideas so little time !


  1. I'm going to be the complete novice here.. but the 'transparent ink' is the pale blue I can see as the background?
    Nonetheless, these look great!

  2. Yes the transparent ink is the blue, it gives the colour a soft washed out appearance.

  3. beautiful! i know the feeling - i have sooo many ideas running through my head too! seems the busier uni gets the more inspired i feel to do other stuff :)

  4. hm funny how that happen,when you haven't got time to be creative your mind if full of brilliant ideas and as soon as you have time alone you don't feel overly creative, well I am like that I don't know about others


Please leave a message and say hello
It would make me feel ever so happy :)
