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

Images from the Christmas in July, Apron market

We had a lovely time at the Apron Market even though it was chilly people still came out to see what was on offer , great to see some familiar faces and to meet new people that like my work.

The wonderful Caravan Photo prop
that looks alot like my little caravan :) very sweet!

Even Ruby survived the Market by making friends with Harriet of Dick and Dora's little boy Rupert, they had a wonderful time playing hide and seek making Christmas decorations together and sharing a lolly pop erk!
