Burning Bright: William Blake and the Art of the Book (Online Exhibition)
The University of Manchester’s John Rylands Library has published an online version of the exhibition ‘Burning Bright: William Blake and the Art of the Book‘ which took place earlier this year.
Through items from the library’s collection, the exhibition explores Blake’s work as a commercial engraver and his influence on Victorian artists, designers and writers.
The online exhibition includes many newly-digitalised images which can be viewed in high resolution (the high resolution version is accessible by clicking on the detail illustrated in the exhibition webpages).
Additional sections showcase various creative responses to the exhibition from visitors to the physical exhibition and participants in activities which ran alongside it, demonstrating that Blake’s inspiration continues to burn bright.
