Ex Libris

 It seemed an awful waste of rubber to carve out the middle of this small fame block, but if I hadn't, I think that the frame would have ended up buckling and not being square. I haven't carved any letters before, so it was a bit of a learning curve to carve this 'ex libris' stamp.
Using an old butterfly stamp of mine, I tested out the new stamps. They weren't too bad, but the whole thing is a little bit too big when compared with the traditional book ownership plates. Still, I can use the stamps, but perhaps I'll try another set a bit smaller.
