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

Civic Homespun Market Launceston
I am very excited to have been offered a stall this weekend at the Civic Homespun Market Launceston , the Pilgrim Hall in Paterson street opposite the Myers car park
The market runs from 10 am till 3pm and there will be a lovely range of handmade wares to buy.
The great thing about this market is they have a web store at their web page where stall holders can upload their stuff for sale a bit like Etsy or made it.
The address is http://www. civichomespunmarket.com.au go have a look.
I will be taking my letterpress machine along to do some demo on the day and I will be also doing some linocutting as well, so come along, say hi and have a natter and see some printing being done
