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

This weekends Market / events rundown

The Niche Market Launceston

We Made it back alive but very very tired from our very hectic weekend of Markets
Ruby and I did the big drive up to my mothers place in Railton on Thursday so that I wouldn't have quite so far to travel to get to The Niche Market in Launceston the next day & Saturday.

Niche was fantastic, beautiful venue with a lovely views, lots of space for everyone to stretch out & show their beautiful wares .
There was a steady stream of eager customers both day & all in all it was a very satisfying couple of days & it was lovely catching up with some Northern Market stall holders that I hadn't seen for a while Hi ISIS !It was a long drive home on Saturday night, only to sleep & do it all again on Sunday at Morrilla Vineyard for the Make A Wish Foundations What women want shopping experience. Our stall at What women Want, Make A Wish Foundation

this event wasn't quiet as fruitful as Niche for us but it was still a lovely event with a fashion show, high Tea, loads of giveaways & I did get to meet the lovely Jackie of Puddleduck Vineyard & I am thrilled to say that we will be working together on some letterpress cards & tags for their gift shop check their site out here www.puddleduckvineyard.com.au
