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

something new

while I have been busy playing with printing on fabric in the last couple of weeks I have also been working on some new linocuts to be printed on paper and here is one of them .

Hand coloured with Windsor and Newton water colours I have decided to paint these in different colours so there is a bit of variety and it makes it a little more fun for me.
I will have these available for sale at Salamanca market (near the ball & chain grill) this Saturday and I will have them listed in my online stores shortly
I hope you like them:)
