5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Pictures, Beautiful Words. 30 Nov 2009
Format:Paperback
This book genuinely impressed me. The pictures of the plates were very detailed and beautiful and the typed text in the back was very useful as it is often difficult to make out Blake's handwriting at a glance. Perfect accompaniment to any course that includes this text.

4.0 out of 5 stars A usefully attractive booklet 21 Aug 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A very nice production ... albeit Blake's thought and full sense remain, as ever, intriguingly hard to penetrate! Perhaps the reproduction of the engravings does seem a little washy - but I have no other source with which to compare. A pretty booklet, however you ;ook at it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hidden treasurers 11 Jan 2011
By Haran - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
If a reader should stumble across this little book of poetry and visual art he ought to be warned that contemporaries considered the author insane because they could not understand him. The reason can be found in the suffusion of his works by his regular discourse with spirit or call it higher dimensions of consciousness, and, therefore, cannot be fully understood by everyday consciousness. His works are full of symbolism and hidden meanings (whole books have been written just to explain the symbolism). For instance the title suggests the solution of duality which obviously is a difficult to grasp esoteric concept. Even some of the easy to comprehend and insightful gems could be understood as just a ploy to attract the reader and in a way saying `there is more, keep digging'. It also appears that the visual content is more than an adornment and more likely to be an integral part of the book, simply because certain thoughts cannot be expressed in words but can still be expressed in images.

This is certainly a book of treasurers, however, some are hidden very deep.

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy to Read 6 Aug 2009
By Kara Nicole - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The illuminations accompanying Blake's poetry should be considered necessary to the reading of his poems. The illuminations are beautiful, descriptive, obviously terribly time consuming and should not be counted as something separate from the words. That said, sometimes it is difficult to read the poems on the illuminations, as they were meant to be read. This book provides the complete illuminations followed by the poems sans illumination, for ease of reading. Also, the price is of course outstanding, as illuminated versions of Blake's poetry can get quite pricey.

1.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Worthless 10 Sep 2013
By Patrick Doyle - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a disgusting product. You are ordering a Facsimile of a handwritten work based on crafted plates. You receive a booklet of pictures of the plates. Ideally, this is what you want to receive. But, Not only is the book incredibly small but the pictures are indentured around the edges making them even smaller. The text is practically unreadable serving this book as useless. Whoever decided to produce this copy did it as a joke and should be out of business. Ordering a facsimile of this book would be to receive a legible print of the pictured plates with all their detail but all you will receive is a pocket book copy that only could serve as food for your next book burning party. Thanks for nothing, publisher.

5.0 out of 5 stars William Blake would, I think be delighted with this version of his work on Amazon.com! 25 May 2010
By G. S. Michaels - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Peter Ackroyd's biography, Blake, renewed my interest in Blake's graphic work. This small copy of Blake' work is intriguing and unintimidating,given that it is short and exquisitely designed from a graphic standpoint. In short, it's accessible. An inexpensive taste test, you might say. I bought two copies just to share with friends.

4.0 out of 5 stars Marriage of Heaven and Hell = Worth It 20 Oct 2010
By shuan8pai - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
William Blake is a humorous satirical writer. His Proverbs of Hell is widely favored and I completely understand why it is so. The 70 axioms under the Proverbs of Hell are both humorous and good principals to hold. Many of these axioms are "quotable" and I've found myself quoting one here and there throughout my day.
I highly recommend this book to anyone! It comes with pictures of the original copper plates the book was printed on but also only has the text at the end.
Takes 30 minutes tops to read.
