William Blake - 30th Apr 2018

The Complete Graphic Works of William Blake
by David Bindman with Deirdre Toomey

This fantastic book contains all of Blake's printed designs and the main variations thereof. It covers his work from the time of his apprenticeship up to his final works. 

It is a pretty exhaustive study and traces his skill and genius from start to finish. There is an annotated catalogue and notes to each plate. There is also discussion of Blake's various methods such as engraving, colour-printing, intaglio- and relief-etching and how he developed and used them. 

Most of the illustrations are printed to the actual size of Blake's plates. Where that isn't possible because the originals were too large, a full-size detail is included. 

This is the book for anyone you know who is a fan of William Blake's art.
