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

Niche- Market Bazaar December 2014

Been a very quiet year for markets this year but this doesn't mean I haven't been doing anything.
To start with I have moved my  from my front bedroom at home to a proper workshop in Latrobe where I can now have all my big printing machines, type and an enormous guillotine, it is nice to have a space for everything. 

Anyway I am very excited to say that I will be having a stall at this years Christmas 
Niche- Market Bazaar on the 6th of December at the Albert Hall in Launceston,Tasmania

 I hope to see lots of familiar faces and  meet some new ones and I am looking forward to sharing all my new Christmas designs with everyone, I have really missed the markets and I am thrilled to be back at Niche this festive season  and I hope to see you there
