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 Hall can be found along the Esplanade at Blackmans bay Beach just along from the Restaurant and beside the skate park.
At the masonic Hall Sandy Bay road,Hobart opposite St david Park,
13th of December Sunday 10am - 5pm
I have attended this market a couple of times before and it has never failed to impress me, the girls that organise this market do an outstanding job setting up and advertising it and we alway have a bumper crowd through the door.
It really is one of the best markets I have been to and the stall holders are carefully chosen to provide the best there is to offer in Hand made/design and art in Tasmania.
I feel very proud to be apart and particularily fond of this market as it was one of the first that I introduced Ruby Victoria Letterpress to the general public to a fabulous response.
I hope to see all the regulars and hopefully some new people at the next market and as I always say Please don't feel shy about saying hello if you have seen my blog and would like to ask me anything about what I do and the letterpress machine.
This Is the last design Market before christmas so it will be well worth visiting so that you dont miss out on getting something extra special and handmade for you loved ones this year.
