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 Is coming Yipee!

With Christmas fast approaching now is the time to find beautiful things for your loved ones and what better gift than a locally made handcrafted gift.
I have no less that 15 design/craft markets in the lead up to the big day so there really is no shortage of fantastic markets to buy handmade.
Here is a list of the markets I will be personally at over the festive season along with loads of other crafters, artist,designers and makers from all over Tasmania

So please come along and have a look at what a fantastic array of local product there are to buy and in most cases what you will be buying will be either a one off or a very limited run of a product which makes it all the more special to the person who receives it. 

Letterpress Christmas bunting by me :) will be for sale at all the lovely Tasmanian markets this festive season starting this weekend
