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

Uppercase Arrived today YAY!

Uppercase magazine, for the creative and curious

My Copy of Uppercase arrived today with my free sample of letterpress goodness
my sample was printed by Mpress studio from California USA

Charlotte Rivers , the author of the Little Book of Letterpress and other arts and graphic design books, produced this A-Z or letterpress print for the issue and what a lovely job she has done too

If you are interested in learning a little more about letterpress and the people that work in this medium I suggest you grab a copy of this issue of Uppercase, it is a great starting point.

If you do buy a copy and you are one of the people that receive my card as your free sample,
I hope you like it :)
