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

Cube Art & design official representatives of Narelle Badalassi's Ruby Victoria letterpress & Printmaking
Fantastic news everyone I have finally scored myself an official rep for my art work and letterpress stationery CUBE Art & Design at Shop8, Salamanca Art Centre, Salamanca place hobart.
I am so thrill to be at Cube and what a fantastic spot to have a Gallery.
Jemima & I have been talking for a while about having a show of my work in her Gallery and we finally worked out and settled on a date in November this year.
The exhibition will consist of my framed & unframed original linocut prints and various pieces of letterpress stationery, so I am thinking I am going to be kinda busy the next couple of months getting ready for the show.
So now I can tick dream number 2 off my list of places to exhibit my work, the first was The Mill Gallery in Launceston and the second was Salamanca and I have achived both this year all a bit of a whirlwind but I love it.
