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

so much for printing

Well so much for printing yesterday after dropping ruby off to school yesterday I decided to go in an do a few things in town after dropping Allan off to work, I had a couple of hours to kill until I had to go back and pick Allan up again.
so I thought I'd go looking around the tip shops
Look what I found this darling little tin toy printing machine made in England

I don't think it is functional but it is still very cute
I think and for only $4.00 I couldn't leave it there.

I also found this very retro picnic set to put in the caravan

I have to admit it Isn't in my favorite colour combination's but very handy
even still and pretty cheap for $15.00.
