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 do believe I have gone a bit Christmas crazy . what I mean is I am normally the one that doesn't like to think, speak, consider even pretend to like the silly season but this year it has started 3 months in advance.
I have been designing and printing christmas stuff for markets for the last couple of weeks, but getting the coasters finally the other day and my order of natural card and envelopes I have gone it to making overdrive. So as you can Imagine the work area has turned into a not very organised space to a complete catastrophy and it is likely to stay this way until I feel like I have enough stuff for all the upcoming Markets and as all you who do the Markets know the big question!, how much is enough !!!!!! argh !!!
anyway here is some photos of the caos that is my house right now and some printing I finished yesterday. hope you all like them.
