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

Ruby Playing the Hurdy Gurdy with Jane

who said fate doesn't have a hand in things ? things have just seems to falling to place for Allan in the last couple of months we have been meeting musicians that are on the same wave length musically to Allan in all kinds of places, markets and the like, it has been just a matter of luck and just speaking up and asking if they would like to collaborate in some way.

Heidi, Rod, Georgina and Allan

We have been having a lot of visitor here the last couple of weeks Allan and some musician friends have been having rehearsals here every week for their up coming concert at the end of May at the St George cathedral in Battery point, Hobart.

Heidi & Georgina

The concert will consist of singing, piano, violin, flute, classical guitar and Hurdy Gurdy the music has a folk/celtic sound and are a mix of traditional and original music.
From what I have heard here at rehearsals it is going to be a spectacular concert and definately one not to be missed.


It has also been a wonderful education for Ruby with all the different instruments passing through our door and hearing so much beautiful music she is having the childhood I dreamt about, my lucky girl.
