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

Dance in my garden
I have been meaning to do a post on here for ages about my friend Luisa and the gorgeous work she does as Danceinmygarden.
Luisa's etsy store was one of my very first favs on etsy, her tepee and bunting blew me away but I think it is all her other brightly colours bibs and bags and other colourful, pretty, happy, creation that really reflect the lovely lady that makes them, I don't think I have ever met anyone so enthusiastic and as openly genuine as Luisa and when you look at her work you know it truly comes from her heart and you get to know a little about her.
Do yourself a favour and have a look at her lovely blog - http://danceinmygarden.blogspot.com/ and then her etsy shop at - http://danceinmygarden.blogspot.com/
