Bucket O' Brains

Isn't that amazingly gross looking? Apparently no one has used this ink in a while. The crust on top was more than half an inch thick. Gross! There's another tub of red ink, but it's a little darker than what I wanted. This is the title page with the darker red:
And here's my arrangement, both the black and two-colored version.
I'm quite pleased with how it came out. The quote at the bottom seems kind of hard to read in the first picture. This is what it says:

There is no nonsense so gross that society will not,
at some time, make a doctrine of it and defend it
with every weapon of community stupidity.

Robertson Davies

Cynical, yes, but think about all the things people refuse to believe in: global warming, the Flying Spaghetti Monster, etc. etc.

Brilliant work! I love the two-colored version, and the placement of the type is fabulous.

Your work is so incredible, so clean, so wonderful! Congratulations on the 2-color print job.
I have to say I have never seen ink look like that, but I have seen crusty eye booger ink, in fact I have some in my drawer right now.

I love that quote ... and I believe it, too. :)
