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

I am starting to think that everything happens when I am sleeping .
I got up this morning got breakie for Ruby and I then sat down to check emails and lo and behold I had received an email from a lady in the UK. she is an Author at a publishing company that prints art related books , asking if I would like to contribute some of my printing images of my work in a book about Letterpress printing.
Of course I wrote back immediately saying YES PLEASE!!
