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

We are off to market again this weekend, first to the Barn market tomorrow

held at the cosy Rosny barn next to the Golf course and the Eastlands shopping centre, I will be inside this time around after our little Dorothy moment with the gazebo at the last market there I have since bought about 100 kilos og weightlifting weights tio tie to the gazebo to keep it put but I have to say i am still a bit nervous about it.The Market kicks off at 10am till 3pm come by and say hello

The second is The Eastside Makers market and will be held on Sunday at the Bellerive PCYC Hall in Scott street Bellerive starts at 10am ends 3pm.

This is the second Eastside Makers market and I am hoping it will be as successful as the first one
The last bit of lovely new is that my flora notecard pages were featured on the front page of etsy tonight along with some other very lovely dust team etsy sellers thank you to Georgicadesigns for including me and congrats on having your treasury chosen to be featured on the front page
