Title and Half-Title Page Proofs

I’ve just got back from this week’s letterpress workshop where I managed to print some proofs (photo below) of the title and half-title pages of the Book of the Erinyes.

These two pages will make up the first signature of the book. The signatures only consist of 2 sheets (8 pages in total, Crown Quarto size — 7½″ x 10″) because of the thickness of the 220gm cartridge paper I’m printing on.

The half-title page is set in 48pt Goudy, and the title page is in various smaller Goudy & Goudy Italic type with a decorative block.
