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

New, Pretty and Small

Over the holiday I had a little bit of time on my hands to think up a few new things on how to reuse the ever mount pile of printed paper I accumulate around the house as I loath to throw any of it out no matter how small a piece it is.
I think I have finally come up with a way to use some of my paper that has been printed but wasn't quiet printed well enough to sell as stand alone art works.

I am not sure if I will make them into magnets or bookmarks or even jewellery yet but I am very happy with how they look and they are totally original as they are made entirely of my own linocut prints instead of cutting out pages from golden books like I had first decided on doing , Glad I didnt !

So what do you all think?
What would you like to see them become as a finished product I would be really interested to hear some of your ideas
Take care Narelle x
