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

A very welcome visitor

We were very happy to welcome our friend and international concert pianist Rhodri Clarke to our home this morning .

Allan & Rhodri : no one get out of this house without having consumed
good coffee before hand

We first met and heard Rhodri play a couple of years ago at the home Hill winery in the huon Valley and where totally blown away by his passionate playing.

Allan had kept in touch with Rhodri and share with him his compositions and Rhodri showed some interest in playing Allan pieces.

going over compositions

Now that Rhodri is back in Tasmania after a year or 2 in the Netherlands and living close by he dropped in for a talk a coffee and a bit of a workshop .

Allan was terribly proud to hear his pieces played by a concert pianist and have him really love the music he has been composing.

Rhodri has ask Allan for his permission to play some of his pieces at up coming concerts.

Thrilled is not the word to describe Allan at the moment :)
