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

Christmas Shopping with Dance in my garden

A couple of days ago I went to visit my lovely friend Luisa, she is the brains and the talent behind Dance in my garden, a wonderful home based business where Luisa makes beautiful, perfectly made bunting for any occasion as well at baby bib and washer packs and my favorite the play tepees .tepee made to order

With Christmas almost upon us I decided to pay Luisa a visit to buy one of her beautiful bunting for my cute little niece Isabella that lives in Queensland

this particular bunting is called carnivale, I think from memory and it will look so pretty in Bella bedroom and with the news that bella is going to be a big sister in the not too distant future I think it will be a great excuse to buy another of these beautiful bunting for bubba
no. 2

I also have my eye on a couple of other buntings to pretty up my new 1950's vintage caravan that I will be busy giving a make over to over the summer holiday
I have fallen in love with there 2 buntings and I can't make up my mind which a like best.

Love bunting

so I am thinking I might have to get both and just change them around when I feel like a bit of a change.

And on a completely different note but kind of linked in as much as it is bought to furnish the caravan.
Have a look at this beautiful crochet blanket that I bought the other day on ebay, I have been scouring around etsy and ebay for month looking for something like this and it finally appeared so I just had to have it I think it will look lovely and give a cosy warm feel to our little holiday home .


  1. All brilliant finds...you did so well. The play teepee is adorable. I have been camping in a 1970s camper for a year now and i love playing dress ups in it

  2. So glad you like the bunting flags, Narelle!
    Can't wait to see your caravan!!
    You are so kind to have featured my stuff on your lovely space - thank you muchly.


Please leave a message and say hello
