Title and Half-Title Page Proofs (part two)

By Paul Watson on .

I’m happy to say that I’ve printed out the title and half-title pages.

On Wednesday at the Letterpress workshop I monopolised the press to run off 30 copies of each (I’ve finalised the limited edition to 30 copies).

Due to the nature of Letterpress there are slight variations between each one — differing amounts and distributions of ink because of how I inked the text on each pass. This is one of the things I really like about Letterpress.

Next up will be the Contents page (which I’ve already set, and is waiting in a galley) and the first actual page of the book.
