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

My printmaking collection, No.1 Alfred Stark
I thought I would share some of my Favourite artists that I have found on etsy and have either bought prints of or done swaps with.
These amazing woodblock prints are from the extremely talented Illinois artist Al Stark I first came across Als work on etsy and instantly wanted to own at least one of his incredible works .
You can find his etsy store here http://www.etsy.com/shop/alfredstark
