This morning I've been experimenting with various printing inks and embossing powders. I'm trying to create a transparent/translucent print effect.

The text I've been setting is Beatrice Wardes' 'The Crystal Goblet' which I felt was apt for typographic experimentations! Though I think I'm going to have to change the text, as I'm not sure it's working as well. Probably to something a bit snappier, more a limerick or a small ditty.

The idea is remove punctuation from the text and replace it with a letterpress version which is larger and then printed using translucent ink. So that you as a reader are aware of the change and the relationship of the marks to the letters and meaning of the words.

Well that is the idea..
