Ex-Libris rubber stamp

Time ago I designed my own Ex-Libris. Don't confuse with Sex-Libris.

I also explained the meaning of every symbol here. The general idea is about the 4 ways to get knowledge. I wanted to make it real as a rubber stamp when I went to Bangkok since I remember there were places there which can do it for about 3 EUR. Unfortunately that's not possible anymore, times goes on and I didn't complete this little project. Until now, in Bangkok again.
I'm very happy with the result. The fine details can be seen and the whole feeling is as great as I had in mind. Black areas are balanced and confortable to watch.

Maybe much pressure needs to be applied because of the large surface. A lesson learned for the next time.

Here some photos from the process.
