Dum spiro spero

I heard somebody on the radio the other day make reference to this motto dum spiro, spero: while I breathe, I hope, or while there's life, there's hope. The concise elegance of the latin and the rhyme, rhythm and poetry within these three words got me thinking & printing. My first version included the word 'hope' but I removed it, preferring to leave space for the word 'breathe' alone.
With very little wooden furniture, making do with odd pieces of wood and magnets works fine to lock the wooden type on the press bed.
