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

Wonderful generous people on Facebook

Yesterday I posted a message on Face book stating that I am afraid of my sewing machine and if anyone would like some of my linocut printed fabric to play with that I would send them a little pack to play with as long as they sent me back some piccies of what they had made with their packs to share with customer along with their packs of fabric.

To my surprise I got some takers,
thank you to
Michelle walker - Belly Designs blog
Carmen Bernstein - Oscar & Rabin
Kate Montgomery - What Kate did Next
Julie Gibson - Tractorgirl
Anna Pateman - King Billy
Annie Inglis,
Danielle Harvey -Fibre & Iron
and Tess Korten - Bou-bi girl

for putting your hand up to save me from the indignation of trying to sew something acceptable to photograph :)
Tess has even offered to make my Ruby a little skirt out of the fabric that would be so special to have something like that made out of my fabric .
I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with once some photo start coming in I will be posting them up on here along with a bio of the maker and where you can find them.
