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

market melt down in progress
I just have to say that this weekends markets have created a fair amount of anxiety in me.
As I type I still have things unfinished nothing too serious but just enough to get me upset and the fact that the tables at one of the markets have shrunk to half the normal sized , so that in itself is enough to make me go into a complete decision making melt down .
DEEP BREATH - DEEP BREATH - DEEPBREATH!!!!!
Oh my Gawd ! forgot to put the blooming Christmas tree in the photo so I have that too !!!!!!
Cup of tea and some curry and I will think about getting my act together ,get the car packed up and off I go ! sounds pretty simple really doesn't it !!!
I hope to see many of you readers at the markets and as i always say please make yourself known and say hello xxx
