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

Mathilda Market preparations

well its less than a month now before the Mathildas market lands on our shores for the first time in Tasmania and I thought I would share some of what I have instore for the big day .

Because Mathildas Market cater mostly for the little people I thought it best to come up with some more little people friendly images, I hope everyone likes them and I will post some more pics once I have gotten around to printing them.
I know very slack in deed but I have been very Ill the last week or so and have only just gotten back into the swing of it so fingers crossed I will be ready .
