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

New linocut tags
Finally gotten around to starting a new linocut for some tags I have been thinking about this one for a while and just haven't gotten around to sitting a carving it out as I have been a little busy with other stuff, but it was nice to just sit quietly and carve I really should do a little bit everyday it settles me down as I tend to cram my mind full of ideas alot of the time and don't get around to off loading any of it and having to focus on one thing seems to help and the fact that I accomplish something helps too .
