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

saturday at Salamanca

ruby with her beautiful face paint

We spent a lovely day at Salamanca market yesterday Allan and ruby stayed the whole day with me which was a nice change as I am usually there by myself, but due to the position of my stall it meant that Ruby had heaps of space to run around and play with other kids through out the day and having Allan there mean I was able to go off and have a look around the rest of the market which never happens normally.

Ruby was rather taken with this guy dressed up as pirate and was pretending to be a statue
personally i find this sort of thing creepy

We had a great day the sun was shining, there were lots of friendly people around and having my family there with me just made it complete :)
