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

festa Italia

After the markets on the weekend we decided to head down to the Italian festival in North Hobart on Sunday ,load of people food and entertainment and displays Allan particularly liked the Ferrari's and the handmade guitars.

Ohh Ferrari's

Ah Italian Motorbikes

What's and Italian festival without Coffee

Handmade Guitars

My Favorite part of the Festival was the
hilarious Mamma Rosa!

what a card this woman is, She's a cook. She's a storyteller.
She's a singer. She's a legend.
And she's a really funny lady..we saw her doing a pasta making demo man this woman can knead dough ! all while dancing.
Honestly you have to see her to believe her with her mono brow, mustache, apron and dry sense of humor she was a hit and even more amazing she is a local and available for party and functions she cooks pasta and entertains at the same time what a woman
you can book her here

Oh course Allan gets the last say in his new T-shirt
It is Allan to a T !
