My first hand-set type

I'm taking a letterpress intensive this week at my local book arts center to learn new things. Today, I set my first metal type by hand. By the end of the week, I'll show it printed. :)

It's from The Lord of the Rings by JRR Tolkien:

All that is gold does not glitter
Not all who wander are lost
The old that is strong does not wither
Deep rots are not reached by the frost

Type is set in 30pt Bernard Roman.
