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

Our new baby

Our new baby

Isn't she the cutest little caravan you have ever seen, she is a circa 1950's Franklin 12 foot caravan.
I have wanted a caravan ever since I was a little girl but unfortunatley my mother hated any kind of camping and just mentioning the word caravan was enough to bring on facial contortions that would turn anyone off mentioning it ever again .
The other side
Yes the caravan needs a bit of a clear and a make over but I am totally in love already and I have got plans for pretty curtains and cushions to make her cosy for when we go off on our little holidays to anywhere we want :)

This is my daddio

Dad has been fantastic, he found our little beauty somewhere in east Devonport and just asked the owner if he wanted to sell it, bless my dad for being so forward lol and since buying it he has been doing little cosmetic jobs on the inside for us and throughly enjoying himself .

Ruby is in da caravan


  1. Oh, she is indeed a beauty...you'll have so much fun with her and make so many fabulous family memories. Enjoy!

  2. oh wow!! you lucky duck! i love camping out in tents, campervans and caravans...mmmmm

  3. Thanks ladies
    I am really excited about making it all pretty and warm for us which is a bit odd as I am not normally one for prettying up but something has changed and I am finding it fun looking at fabrics and buying things to fit it out :)

  4. How cool is your Dad! Can't wait to see what you do with that van!

  5. hi ange yes dad is the coolest he was saying that he wants to keep the van for himself now lol not cool!
