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

Typo

Why didn't anyone tell me about it fantastic shop, we discovered it last night while looking around Westfield shopping center in Hurstville
I could have blown all my money in this shop but I settled for this beautiful set of lanterns and a cute little flipclock I had one of these when I was a kid and couldn't resist buying this.Typo have stores all over Australia but unfortunately not in Tasmania, Surprise Surprise ! but the good news is the have and online store here at www.typoshop.com.au
The Typo store we visited had only opened that day and they were doing a roaring trade you couldn't move for all the people.

  3. Hi Nell

    Kikki K is in the QVB - open between 9-6 today. You *must* get there! Another version is in the Strand Arcade. They're also in the new Westfield in the Mall.

    And inside Cotton On in Hobart's Mall, there is a small Typo section so don't despair!

    Enjoy Sydney - I miss the old girl!
