BLAKE’S LONDON: THE TOPOGRAPHIC SUBLIME | Iain Sinclair
What was William Blake’s relation with London? And how did this relation shape his poetic visions? In this small and specially designed volume, Iain Sinclair takes the reader on a discursive journey through Blake’s London showing how, in Blake’s vast and rich poetry, language and imagination conjoin to delineate a profound engagement with place.

WILLIAM BLAKE: THE COMPLETE ILLUMINATED BOOKS
In his ‘illuminated’ books, William Blake combined his handwritten text with his exuberant imagery on pages the like of which had not been seen since the great decorated books of the Middle Ages. To have Blake’s great prophetic poems – Jerusalem and Songs of Innocence and of Experience, for example – in cold letterpress bears no comparison to seeing and reading them in Blake’s own medium, with his sublime and exhilarating colours.

THE MARRIAGE OF HEAVEN AND HELL
Once regarded as a brilliant eccentric whose works skirted the outer fringes of English art and literature, William Blake (1757–1827) is today recognized as a major poet, a profound thinker, and one of the most original and exciting English artists. Nowhere is his glorious poetic and pictorial legacy more evident than in The Marriage of Heaven and Hell, which many consider his most inspired and original work.
