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

More great luck

I hit the jackpot again today while looking through a local second hand store
I stumbled across all these vintage little golden book,
I just had to have them.

I am an absolutely smitten with the illustrations in the pre 1970's books
I just find them so much more lush to look at.

I also found this fantastic extremely heavy tape despenser .
I have been looking for another one of these for ages

All for a measily $16.00 unbelievable
*Happy dance*


  1. I love those pictures too, nice find:)'The Boy With A Drum' and 'Leave It To Beaver'. Love it!!

  2. Great finds again! We were only recently talking about getting a copy of "Bedknobs and Broomsticks" to watch on our family movie nights, what a coincidence! :)
