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

The market is held over 2 days the
28th and 29th of Nov. at St peters hall
corner of Brisbane and Harrington St in Hobart.

I will have my little tabletop letterpress machine there doing demos for people to have a look and see how my printing is done and if space permits people can have a go at printing something themselves.
It is always a joy for me to see a little kids face when they see something they have printed and better still they have seen and understood where it has come from .
It feel nice to know that I am able to keep Letterpress alive in my own little way.
Please come and say hi especially if you have seen my blog and have been following I love meeting new people that are interested in what I do .
