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

Going Global

I have been thinking about setting a streaming webcam up at the studio and have it broadcasting on the net in times of high production.

I don't even really know how to go about setting something like that up but I just thought it might be fun for people to see how I work when I am making prints or carving a new block I suspect there might be a lot of me staring out at the sea, Wow how exciting would that be to watch! lol

would you watch?
do you think it is an interesting, stupid, odd, idea?
what do you all think ?
