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 Vintage Rose
Boy o Boy it was hot in Launceston today!
I took a trip up north to deliver a package of letterpress goodies up to Amanda the lovely owner or the even lovelier little shop the vintage Rose, in Tamar street just down from the Design Centre and city Park. Amanda stocks the most beautiful French provincial style wares, and the smell of the shop as you first walk in is just divine but my most favourite thing in the shop is the gorgeous jugs and dinnerware I think being married to a chef has well and truly rubbed off.
Amanda is now stocking a range of my note paper packs and tags for the Christmas season so if you like the look of them and would like to see them in the flesh before buying just go visit The Vintage Rose and have a little look.
