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

while at the handmade market last weekend I spent some of my time carving out this new linocut of a lovely decorative stack of teacup .
Anyone that knows me is aware that my life wouldn't be complete without cups of strong tea everyday so it seemed like a good subject for a new linocut.
I am so thrill how this one has turned out, it took me a while and a fair amount of fiddling around but it has been well worth the patience involved.
I have just in the last hour posted this print on my esty store
and I have already sold one in the first 15 minutes wow that is the fasted sale I have every made, thanks to Rosemari of walk in the woods here are some of her links
New prints and other little things will be available at the next Woodbridge market this Sunday if all goes to plan
I hope to see you all there
