Blake, William: Songs of Innocence and of Experience. v1. 12 April 2011

William Blake (1757-1827) was an engraver, printer and painter as well as a poet. Most of his books were produced using a technique known as relief etching, which involved writing the text of the poems on copper plates. The pages printed from these plates were hand-coloured and stitched together to make up the book. As a result, every book was unique - not only in the colouring, but sometimes in the choice and placing of the poems. This version is based on an edition in the British Museum. Details of other editions can be found in the William Blake Archive http://www.blakearchive.org/blake/

This (rather large) file contains the engravings that make up the book, each one followed by a transcription of the text. The engravings work remarkably well in greyscale, but if you use one of the Kindle apps you can see them in colour.

The transcriptions of the poems follow the engravings in spelling, capitalization and punctuation (although it is often difficult to distinguish between a punctuation mark and a mark in the engraving).
