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

Spoonful of Galleons

A little while back I wrote to the lovely Anthea of Spoonful magaZINE expressing my interest in contributing something to her little zine and to my joy she contacted me a couple of weeks back asking if I would like to be a feature artist in Spoonfuls Objects of Affection spread, of course I said yes.The task for all artists involved was to create a piece of work being painting, drawing, sewing anything really depicting the chosen object, this time around was a Galleon or tall ship to my complete horror but I am happy to say I think I have pulled it off ok

let me know what you think.

please check out the Spoonful blog and purchase one of the zines that are available they are a very sweet little publication http://spoonfulzine.com/
