“That day, she was amazed to discover that when he was saying ‘As you wish’, what he meant was, ‘I love you.’ And even more amazing was the day she realized she truly loved him back…”

Do I ever love The Princess Bride! I grew up watching this movie with my Dad all the time. Whenever it was airing, it was on our TV. Billy Crystal is just classic as are most of the lines in the film. I had some chipboard laying around and really wanted to try some wood type on it. It seemed like a great time to use this quote.

It was incredibly easy to lock up with the large one inch wood letters. Though, I think as I was printing, the chipboard damaged them a little and gave them more texture. I want to try this on a softer paper and see how it goes. You can see some of the little dents in the type above.

Here is a neat little stack on the Platen Press and the final product.

The chipboard gave it a lot of character but didn’t let the gold stand out as much as I’d like. I will be printing this again in grey on chipboard, and gold on white in the next few weeks as I have time.

I put a copy on my desk and it warms it up nicely! I love seeing the prints I make in my office. Reminds me of working with my hand!
