The end papers are printed

Two sets of end papers awaiting sewing onto the text block.

I managed to find time to print some endpapers using a soft plate off-set technique. I am happy with the results, the colours and textures remind me of the colours found in the Welsh landscape, the lichens, the rocks, the scrubbed sky.

A close up of one set of end papers, highlighting (I hope) the colours and textures.

By the close of the day I hope to be able to have them sewn on to the text block and trimmed . The heady world of the bookbinder is full of wonders.
