Now considered a seminal poet, painter, and engraver of the Romantic Age, William Blake achieved recognition as a poet during his lifetime but was not widely known as an artist. Despite having followed a rather conventional path to an art career, Blake was an original thinker and an artistic innovator. He was deeply interested in history and mythology, which, along with his often controversial beliefs, he personalized and channeled into poetry and art. His dual significance to his era as both writer and artist, as well as his influence on future generations, continues to capture the attention of scholars and laypeople to this day.
The 30 images presented in this book of postcards include watercolors, drawings, prints, and illuminated books.
