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


  1. I spy half my noggin and the midget! The guys stuff was fantastic, it was good they did well. Hope you're catching up on some zzzzzz's.

  2. haha tomorrow I will do house work and zzzzzzzzzzzzz well in theory I will do that but I know me and it wont happen I will start printing again !

  3. Howdy Narelle, it was fun at eastside. Had to drive arkmetalbrad a bit as he had a boozy and no sleep night before. Gg and pig currently listening to Allans music-excellent-a great purchase. Very very good piano player with a nice blend of technique and feel. i also like the subtle dynamics and what a composer! Thanks for all the tips and banter. Your stall and stuff are great. Can we promote Allans C.D. on our site? and can we use the photo you took of our stall? See u again. Arkmetal men.
