The Dwarf Empire: Gold Finishing
A later version was gilded with a brass plate dye. This was also done with my Krause press. The advantage is that the letters of the gilding have exactly the same form, font as the title page of the book itself.
An example of the loose gildingletters.
Het titelvergulden ("goud op goud") werd in de eerste reeks vervaardigd met beschikbare messing letters uit mijn atelier vervaardigd.
The title gilding ("gold on gold") was for the first series of books manufactured with brass letters available from my studio.
