Block prints almost ready

These block prints (see here and here for previous posts on them) have costed blood and tears (literally, I've rubbed my knuckles raw and lately stabbed my left hand repeatedly and badly with the blades) but THEY ARE ALMOST THERE. I'm still at a hit and miss stage with the paint thickness and the printing methodology (burnishing with a spoon), so it may still be a few days until they hit the shop. I am also testing (as you can see) different shades of grey. So far, the lightest grey is my favourite. I have also experimented with turquoise lettering on white paper, and white lettering on off-white paper (very, very subtle. So subtle that you have to look at it in an angle for the message to appear. This seems a bit too subtle for me). The size is an A3 (that is two landscape standard -A4- pages on a column). The writing is obviously Beatle-esque. How do you like them?

What did you think?
