The Illuminated Books of William Blake Re-created
copper plates, old papers & Historic pigments
Michael Phillips has skillfully re-created the original relief-etched copper plates of William Blake's illuminated books that disappeared in the nineteenth century. Impressions are printed from the plates on old papers using historic pigments mixed to match the same coloured inks that Blake used. Printed entirely by hand, individual plates or sets of plates from the illuminated books are available for purchase.
