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

Handmade Nation

Yup I went and bought a copy as I didn't get to see it when they had a little viewing get together at the local salamanca art centre a little while back and I just figure that if I didn't just buy it there would be a pretty good chance that I would never get to see it .
Maybe if there are another other local artists and crafters that haven't seen it and would like to ,we could have another little viewing get together and nibbles at my place and I have to tell you Allan is a chef and make the yummiest finger food. let me know what you think and we can maybe get some number and just do it !! I think it will be fun to get to know people away from the meltdown environment of the markets .
