Crosby, M: Genesis
William Blake's Last Illuminated Work
William Blake - poet, printmaker, artist - drew inspiration from the Bible throughout his life. Shortly before his death in 1827, he began an illuminated manuscript of the "Book of Genesis", revisiting such key themes as creation, division, and forgiveness. This edition offers a full-size color reproduction of the Huntington Library's manuscript.
