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 Latest type Aquistion

I love type so much !
This is my lasted purchase of type
I love it! so simple and clear to read and a favourite of Libbies from
Vintage Fur Couturiere
I print her Business cards with this font on post consumer recycled card and she has told me that she has had countless enquires about her cards and where she got them from, I'd have to say that Libbie would have to be one of my most vocal supporters and I adore her for it .
