I typically print (at 100%) parts of the section I'm working on. Helps me spot areas that need finessing. Some of the "bricks" (horizontal 'I') in that center section are too close to each other; others are too far apart.

woah, so do you hand place each letter?
Many of them, yes. Small chunks can be copied and pasted, but even then I end up positioning, rotating, or adjusting probably 80-90% of the characters in the artwork.
Dear lord... This must take forever! Wonderful result though Cameron!
My Colosseo print is hanging proudly over my fireplace – looking forward to adding one to go beside it!
Are you doing the lighter shades with grey ink or just lighter type?
!!! Woo !!!
Also, the Temple print is now framed and up in our bedroom. Finally.
Gosh, this one is going to be magical
@James Puckett: Two color printing for this one. (A first in my letterpress series.)
@Tiffany Wardle de Sousa & @Jordan Little: High five!
@Trent Walton: Thank you, kind sir. I have other tricks up my sleeve.
Your work is incredible. This well and truly blows my mind.
What a labor of love. Can't wait to see the finished product!
