Belshazzr's Feast

In celebration of the WASO - West Australian Symphony Orchestra performance of Belshazzar's feast, I thought it would be fun to create some coasters with phrases from the great work to share with my fellow chorus members. (and get some much needed practice of hand setting type - as you will see, I need it!)

I find it challenging locking up text in the chase. I never seem to have furniture of the right size and my lock up is very dodgy..

Also, I only have one letter each of the alphabet in my wood blocks, so I had to be picky with my words but it worked out well even if it did take all day to print 10 of each....

Black text - hand set 18pt type.
Red text - various wood block type.
