This large format, full colour hardback book is a recent, authoritative work on William Blake (1757-1827), the Romantic London esoteric mystic. Art, prints, watercolours and sketches are all presented in high-quality reproduction. The written text benefits from the latest scholarly insights and most current understandings of the man, his world, and his cultural context. This is an important book for lovers of Blake and indeed for everyone who cares about the esoteric imagination of the 18th and 19th centuries.
