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

I love flickr
I have been a member of Flickr for a couple of years now and I never tire of it,so much to look at and be inspired by groups to join and people to become friends with .
I have been a Pro member since I first joined and will continue to be for as long as I can as it has been a fantastic resource for me in regards to finding new ways to display my work at market and just finding inspiration for new prints
I love flickr I bet you will too!
