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

Just a little update

I just want to apologise to you for my long absences here at the moment, things have been abit busy here of late with moving house and other things. 

I have been busy reprinting alot on my most popular greeting cards, a couple of weeks ago at Salamanca market during an insident when we were packing the car to go home, I had a fall and during the commotion some one helped themself to a box of my greeting cards, so the past couple of weeks have been spent at the studio reprinting approximately 600 greeting cards to replace the ones that were stolen.
I have also been busy drawing and printing some new bookplate those of you who follow me on Facebook will have already seen the pictures of them but I thought I would share here also 

I am really happy with how they have turned out, I really hope you like them too
