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

printing on Fabric

So here are some photos of my fabric printing effort of the last week or so,
They were printed with a lino block onto natural calico fabric using my table top letterpress Machine, What do you think?

I am just trying to work out what I will actually do with them now .
I thought they might look nice as bunting or sewn to the front of a plain white t-shirt for a little girl or even maybe used for sewing together to make a pretty little quilt.
I have been wondering if they would be ok to sell as little packs of assorted coloured squares so that people can decide themselves what they might like to make with them this way I won't have to embarrass myself by attempting to sew :)

I would love to hear some suggestions on how and what I should use these pretty little squares for.
