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

Christmas in July with the Apron Design Market

With the next Apron Design Market looming I thought it best to get my thinking cap on and have a think about what I could make to get in the Christmas Spirit.
I came up with this new linocut design of these press snow flakes I have plans to make these in to pretty little brooches similar to the flower ones I have been making.
I thought I would also print these on calico and sell in packs to be used for quilting or any other craft project for Christmas or whenever.
Below is some photos of what will be available I hope you can come along and join us for this lovely market.
