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

linocut & felt brooches

Today I decided that I was going to use some of my handprinted fabric to make some felt brooches.
I used iron on adhesive to stabilise the printed calico to the felt then cut around them,
I then stitched around the flower with a back stitch in a complimentary coloured thread.
To Finish the brooch i blanket stitched the back on, stuffed and then finished stitching to close up the seam.
I will have some finished brooches at Salamanca Market this Saturday for sale
