Présentation de l'éditeur

In his " Illuminated' books ", as he called them, William Blake combined text and image in a single page in a way that had not been clone since the Middle Ages. He saw religion and politics, intellect and emotion, mind and body as both unified and in conflict with each other: his work is expressive of his personal mythology, and his methods of conveying it were integral to its meaning. To read books such as " Jerusalem ", " America ", and " Songs of Innocence and of Experience " in cold letterpress bears no comparison with seeing them as Blake conceived them, infused with his sublime and exhilarating colours. At times tiny figures and forms dance among the lives of the text, flamesappear to burn up the page, and dense passages of Biblical-sounding text are brought to a jarring hait by startling images of death, destruction and liberation. Original copies of the books exist only in minute numbers. Each is different. Now the plates from The William Blake Trust's Collected Edition, reproducing a fine example of each book, are brought together in a single volume, with transcripts of the texts, and an introduction by the noted Blake scholar David Bindman. They can at last become part of the lives of all loyers of art and poetry.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Fascination Has Its Price 16 juin 2014
Par Robert Duncanson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Generally, I enjoy the art works printed by Dover Publishers. For Dore, Grosz, Hogarth, Piranesi there is none out there better.

But volume of Blake's work is worth a price that is triples the rate for anything from Dover.

It is a beautiful publication with perfect color matches to the original. It offers the chance for the reader to deal with the text from the original or to choose much more readable type at the volume's end.

If you want to have a visionary's art and verse handy and home, this is the book to buy

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Amazing Collection at a Great Price 31 juillet 2012
Par Aaron Wiegert - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
The Complete Illuminated Books is a wonderful collection of facsimiles of Blake's original etchings. Because Blake's printings were so limited (sometimes only printed in a single volume and at most printed in 50 volumes)this is as close as anyone will get to experiencing the original prints of William Blake. I highly recommend this book for anyone who appreciates literature, art and their innovative intertwining by a master of both. A beautiful volume and an incredible value!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 the original illuminated books 8 novembre 2007
Par Ernie - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This beautiful paperback volume consists of high quality reproductions of Blake's original illustrated books. It is an incredible bargain. The pictures are powerful and Blake intended the pictures and the texts to illumine each other. I've never disciplined myself to sit down and read the text from the engraved script; its not easy or natural since the print on many plates is small and faint; but it would be worth the effort. However, there is a type face version of all the poems in the back, to refer to when needed to make out a word. This is an essential book for anyone seeking to understand Blake's profound prophetic vision more deeply.
4.0 étoiles sur 5 Really nice book but some of the images are very small. 18 mars 2014
Par Kenneth McAlpine - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This book is really good, and the printing quality is quite nice which is important for an art book. However, many of the images are very very small. Perhaps these images are small because the scans that the compiler had available to them were not high resolution enough to fill the page reasonably, but many of the images are only 3" across.

Still it's a decent book and very inexpensive compared to other compilations of Blake's work.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The Complete Graphics of Blake are a Fabulous Find on Amazon.com! 25 mai 2010
Par G. S. Michaels - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Peter Ackroyd's biography, Blake, renewed my interest in Blake's graphic work. This collection of Blake's plates turns out to be wonderfully exciting, complete and visually arresting. I am extremely excited by it. The opportunity to read his work as written, painted or etched in his own hand is wonderful. Moreover, I find that the same texts that soon proved "dry" when viewed as text alone now come alive when accompanied by the Master's graphic designs.

Frankly, I can't wait to share copies with friends. I have already shared it with those couple of friends with an interest in art and poetry.
