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

woke up this morning to my surprise over night I had been included in not 1 but two treasuries .
how exciting ! I especially love the retro kitchen treasury
I can never seem to snare a treasury of my own they have proven to be a bit elusive to me and I have given up trying now but I am very sure they would be alot of fun making maybe one day I will try again
Thank you to Carrie & Tracy for including my work you can find their etsy stores carriedawaybags & here rubyspiritdesigns
