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

beautiful people and treasures

today has been full of beautiful things and people
Today Ruby and I took a trip out to Richmond with my good friend Grace.
Grace and I had planned a trip out there to see the teddies on the green shop as I had never been there I bought the cute little pink Teddie bear and the little worry doll brooch so sweet .
The weather was so lovely out there we took a walk around the town, we has a beautiful garlic pizza for lunch then drove back to Graces for a cuppa.
to my glee Grace gave me one of her beautiful handmade elephant dolls and one of her print as a trade for some of my new bookplates and paper bunting, I chose this particular print as it reminds me of grace and I love Crows so I thought it was a good pick.

  Another lovely surprise when I got home was my lovely big bag of handmade notebooks  i bought off etsy,made by my friend Isis were sitting on my doorstep waiting for me to get home, I love getting mail espacially when it is something I can print on :)
I hope you have all had a day as nice as mine has been
