    Probably but very badly I'd imagine. Very very badly would be my guess. I doubt I'll even attempt to read the words. Luckily it's mostly pictures. About 200 pages long.

    yeah i was considering coming down for it and still plan to, but the last time i went to the tate for an exhibition, the crowds and the fact you feel a bit rushed was really annoying.

    I guess he's not a special case necessarily but

    Even so I found myself disgusted to see Blake's paintings turned into tea towels and drinks trays.

    got the book now and i think it's the 'Urizen' pictures that I like the best. just the way the bodies are squashed into the frame and all contorted.
    there's also that pretty funny one of satan and his lobber is covered up by some other demon below

    gotta say, i've never managed to get through any of blake's writing. it's very bombastic. but the pictures are really good.
