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

As some of you might already know I have spent the last couple of weeks juggling Christmas orders and getting my new linocut works finished for my first solo exhibition of original printmaking and letterpress pieces at Cube Art and Design at the Salamanca Art Center.

There is not be an official opening for this exhibition but I would be sooooo happy if you would go take a look and maybe even purchase something from the show.
The show will be able to be see from the 8th of November and will be there till the 22nd of November

In other exhibition news I have been asked by the lovely Becky from the Richies mill, Providore gallery to exhibit some of my printing in their upcoming Christmas show "Feast for your eyes"
