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

Mathildas market a huge sucess !

Ruby Victoria Letterpress & Printmaking (aka Me)

The very talented Isis with her upcycled journals

The most beautiful dresses I have ever seen

Little snorings stall

Mathildas market was here today and what a lovely day it was too
There has been a buzz around Hobart for months about Mathildas coming to Tasmania and from what I could see customers were not disappointed.
There was a steady flow of parents & grandparent with their little ones tagging along all day so the times flew by and before we knew it it was all over and time to pack up and go home .
I would like to thank the Mathildas market organisers for giving Hobart a chance to shine and be part of their very exciting national market place for kids and their parents and I look forward to Mathilda's return later in the year
