'Beautifully reproduces Blake's vibrant images . . . handsome' - Art Newspaper 'Sumptuous facsimiles...glorious coloured pages...like peeping into a furnace of light through a crack in the door' - London Review of Books 'Astonishing ... a magnificent tribute to Blake's genius ... one of the publishing triumphs of recent years' - The Birmingham Post

Product Description

- Contains over 400 original photographic reproductions of Blake’s hand-crafted masterpieces

William Blake was one of the England’s greatest poets, and one of England’s greatest artists. He united art and poetry in his “illuminated books”, which he painstakingly engraved with his verses and drawings, then coloured by hand. Only a few copies of each one were ever made. The illuminated books are a sublime expression of his unique religious and artistic vision, exploring good and evil, heaven and hell, and the nature of human imagination. Even after two centuries their timeless beauty can takes a viewer’s breath away. This monumental ebook edition brings together for the first time all of these immortal masterpieces, including Songs of Innocence and Experience, Milton, Jerusalem, and his “prophecies” America and Europe. This edition presents reproductions of every page of the illuminated books, with each one followed by the text of the poem, meticulously edited and fully searchable. All of the illustrations have been specially formatted for Kindle. They render in elegant black and white on e-paper Kindles, and in glorious full colour on tablets such as the iPad or Kindle Fire, or on Kindle for PC. Blake’s visionary works can finally be experienced as he himself intended, with words and art together in one.

“Imagination is the real and eternal world of which this vegetable universe is but a faint shadow.”
William Blake
