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

2 markets in one weekend
thats right we are back at Salamanca Markets again this weekend , praying for nice weather as it is forecast for rains eeep! I am now frantically trying to work out a stall set up in my mind to stop from getting a wet botty and left with only pulp to sell !
I will also this weekend be back at The Market at the Masonic temple here in Hobart
I haven't had a stall here since April so it will be nice to be back there along with some other lovely artists and designer.
So please come along to one or both of these markets this weekend and have a look at what some of Tassies best makers have been up to.
see you there
