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

String & where to get it in Hobart.

I have a confession to make!
I am in love with string, Twine, Rope, cord what ever you call it I love it and the best place I have found to get it is Karen Wagners Garden Design shop in Warwick Street in Hobart, Karen has lots of different types, colors,thicknesses and lenghts you are bound to find something you like. there I have done it I have let the cat out of the bag you all now my secret supply of beautiful string just dont go buying it all leave some for me okay !!!


  1. Thanks for sharing - will keep Karen in mind when next searchng for a nice selection of string!

  2. no worries Ange ! Karen s shop is just divine I promise you won't leave there empty handed, it is a very dangerous shop! oh and it smells stunningly beautiful! go have a sniff !!

  3. it's so hard to find good string these days! thanks for the tip!

  4. I love the red and white twine, something I'd buy and not have a use for! Also Store and Co in Macquarie St have great string.

  5. It's good to know I'm not the only string-aholic in town!

  6. oh no Rosie! I bet there are a few more closet sting addicts around the place.


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