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

The beginning of another creative week


Its nice to start the week on a creative note I have been struggling a little lately to get into the groove of being able to sit and think about new work but this morning I got up to find an email from Anthea from spoonful zine saying I wasn't too late to get in a design for the next publication of spoonful.
Each issue
, Anthea the author 0f Spoonful nominate an object that makes them smile, she then invites a handful of artists/designers to interpret the image in anyway they like sewing, baking, painting, drawing, photography anything they like.
I would also like to say a big thank you to Christina for letting me use her beautiful photo on Flickr as a reference you will have a print on its way to you just as soon as it is carved and printed
Wish me luck
