Songs of Life is a new production of Songs of Innocence and Songs of Experience by William Blake, created for a London art exhibition held in celebration of William Blake. It is produced here in a small print run to a high production standard.
Songs of Innocence and Songs of Experience were first published together in 1794. This edition includes all of Blake's poems from those volumes, each with a new colour illustration by 21st century artist Mark Sheeky. The text has been carefully transcribed from an original copy of Blake's work, retaining the original spellings and punctuation.
The result is a new definitive version of this English classic; a visionary artwork that combines 18th century text and 21st century imagery.
