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

New stuff

beautiful wooden type case

 Met a wonderful man about a month ago at a local market named Max, we got talking and he told me he had been a stationery rep all his working life and said he had an Adana press just like mine, we got talking about all the people we knew in common in the printing industry and the like and he invited me over to have a look at what he had, so of course I said yes and this is what I found  hope you enjoy the photos :)
