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

Well it was a seriously hectic weekend but it all ended very well for all concerned I think !
There were alot of people through both the beach and the sandy bay markets which was nice to see and the weather was good to us as well always a plus on market day.
These were my last two market for the years and I will be taking it a little easier but will still be working on new stuff for next year, getting some drawing done and actually carve out some new blocks which I am especially looking forward to.
I will still be filling orders from etsy and Made it through the Christmas period so if you want to order anything feel free to visit my store and make a request.
