Yesterday was the 194th anniversary of the death of poet and artist William Blake.
Literary Hub shared a way to mark the occasion that’s still worth enjoying any other day of the year: a free digital collection of Blake’s work.
The William Blake Archive features all printed and scanned copies of Blake’s works, so you can compare and contrast how the visuals evolved between printings (or simply admire them).
Blake is best known for his illustrated poetry collections include Songs of Innocence and Songs of Experience; his most recognizable poems today are “The Lamb,” “The Tyger,” and “London.”
