Author(s): William Blake
This collectors' edition reproduces the complete collection in the original illuminated manuscript form, with Blake's illustrations and decorative borders surrounding the poems. The combination of text and image, sometimes tightly interwoven, is typical of Blake's remarkable, individual style, in which the artist and his creations form the bridge between poles of being, between innocence and experience. First published 1794; this edition with introduction bu Felicity James 2009.
