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

Sunday at the badalassi's

Today has been spent mostly outside in the garden with Allan mowing and whipper snippering and Ruby and I cleaned out the back courtyard and we went shopping for some new plants,
I thought it might make me feel like spending some more time out in the yard if I planted
some lovely new flowers and got Ruby in on the act.

We bought a couple of new daisy plants which I love, so simple, beautiful and you can't kill them pretty much, we also got some seed to plant just some easy growing nasturtiums,
some cottage garden mix and a punnet of Gazanias all fast growing
and easy to care for.
I got ruby some kids gardening tools and some very cute little gardening gloves as well as some new ones for me and we were set to get planting.

Last time I tried to get Ruby involved she pulled all the flowers off my strawberry plants so no fruit that time but the plants have really sprung to life again and have lots of lovely flowers so I am hoping to keep them safe from birds and Rubys.

I was surprise how much Ruby got into it really I thought she would get bored pretty fast
with it all but she didn't and wanted to go back out and do some more!
but alas the rain had other plans.
I hope you are all having a lovely Sunday too
