Walking Round Cambridge with William Blake:
Auguries of Innocence, illustrated by Rose Harries
William Blake's Auguries of Innocence is
not an easy text, for despite the nursery-rhyme simplicity of
Rose Harries was a stranger to Blake's couplets until 2007 when she spent some time with Blake and his Auguries, walking the streets of Cambridge with a sketchbook, fitting her impressions of the poem with the modern scenes of street-life. Not surprisingly, her line drawings open the text in a new way, prompting the reader to a fresh view of a complex masterpiece.
Walking Round Cambridge with William Blake is hand set in 18 point Baskerville and printed on Zerkall paper in black text with sanguine illustrations. Fifty-two pages bound in quarter cloth and decorated paper over boards, the book is 10 3/4 x 7 1/2 inches.
This is another great text for binders: four sections, with end papers included.
