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

lovely stuff in the mail
I just want to share this photo with you I received these lovely goodies in the mail today from my friend and fellow artist Naomie Shepherd from NSW
We have been collaborating on a little project together as a part of her upcoming exhibition in September this year
Anyway as a thank you Naomie offered to send me some golden book as she knew I made envelope out of them and I had offered to do some printing for her for free and wanted to over me something in return but I was really surprise to receive one of Naomies hand painted plushie dolls with a sweet little note of thanks ....I was really touched by this as I never expected anything like this and it is really good to know there can be such kindness shared between two like minded people that have never met in the flesh and only on Facebook
Thank you Naomie you really are a Gem x
