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

Tasmania by Hand

'Tasmania By Hand' is a new project bringing a fresh and stylish selection of talented Tasmanian artists and makers to the rest of Australia. Each market we attend will have different featured artists/makers from a variety of mediums from all over Tasmania.
I am thrilled to announce that Ruby Victoria letterpress has been selected to be one of the lucky Tasmania Makers to be represented at the December Finders Keepers in  Sydney at The Carriage works just in time for Christmas YAY
I would like to say a big thank you to Maya and Sam of Hideyo Designs for being the ones organised enough to come up with this concept and to see it through :) you guys Rock!
