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

I can completely relate to this right now!
I just thought I would share this fabulous little Doodle from a blog I found called Food & Doodles http://foodanddoodles.blogspot.com/
I am at about the little dude at number 5 there are just time when as an artist/creative soul you just have so many wonderful ideas and plans and they just don't stop and it can make you feel a bit like you are getting over run and over whelmed by it all.
Mind you I wouldn't want to be any other kind of person I like having lots of ideas and plans going on and dreaming of realising a few of them is a wonderful thing.
Dreams are where wonderful things start from!
