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

The big reveal

Some of you may know that I have been playing with printing on calico fabric and you probably know I am not a sewer so when I finished printing my first fabric I began thinking of way to show case what can actually be made with my design, I decided top put a call out to anyone on Facebook that:

1)could sew to safe themselves
2)wanted to get their hands on some of my new fabric to play with
3) agree to send me photo of what they had made with the fabric

Well the photos have started coming in and to my delight these clever women have made some beautiful creation with the fabric I sent to them and so quick as well
I wanted to share them with everyone and I hope you all click on the link and take a look at what else these creative marvel get up to.
