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

Letterpress love and surprises in the post
hi everyone yep I have been at it again buying stuff online .
Firstly I bought one of the upcycled journal off Isis http://www.etsy.com/shop/isis for a good friend of mine for Christmas and lovely Isis send me a little surprise in the shape of 3 little badges, since I have been attending markets I have become quite partial to the odd brooch and I have been holding the erge back to buy as I know that once I start I wont be able to stop.
the other purchases are of yes letterpress type a lovely 36pt bold font from my mate John in Queensland and a perpetual calendar from the UK so I can make my own limited edition handmade calendars, I have had ideas floating around in my head for a while now !
