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 love Lapwing press
I am so excited my package from lapwing press in the Uk arrived this morning but not only did they send me my beautiful print they also threw in some of their letterpress and handcarved greeting cards and some lovely little moo business cards I love them so much I wanted to share them with EVERYONE!
John and Sarah are are the talented pair behind the lapwing name and they create the most stunning wood engravings, linocuts and hand bound books.
I have been following their progress into letterpress on flickr and then on etsy and as soon as I saw the tea wood engraving I couldn't wait any longer to purchase a print from these talented folks.
