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

East side Makers Market
The inagural Eatside Makers Market was on yesterday and we had a fantastic day meeting all our new customers on the otherside of the Derwent and all the new and regular market crowd .
The venue was perfct so big and light and stalls were spaced out so we all had plenty of room to move.
This time I was lucky enough to be placed next to the Arkmetal guys.Pig & his mate brad together make the most mind blowing creations out of found metal objects and put them together using welders and drills and all matter of wonderfully dangerous power tools.
I particularily like the candle arboura made out of a huge Valiant manifold and Pigs very beautiful little mirrors and to top it off these guy are funny as ! do yourself a favour and have a look at their blog here ,very inspiring stuff.
Anyway I had a great day but I must say I was very happy to get home and just zonk after a very busy and tiring weekend of markets
