Further information:
"William Blake's 'illuminated' books, as he called them, were a challenge to the way books had been made since the invention of movable type in the fifteenth century, and continued to be made until recently. In them, he produced text without the need for typesetting, and illustrated books without the need for separate plates... Blake's books are hand-made objects, individually produced by the author-artist himself, and even copies of the same book differ from each other in the complement of pages, page order, colour and occasionally the wording." David Bindman (from the Introduction)
The book reproduces the complete suite of Blake's illuminated books.
