It all started with a chance encounter with William Blake’s life mask at The Huntington Library in San Marino, California. As I contemplated the grimly determined visage, I felt like I was sitting right beside the famous crank, in his humble rooms, listening to him rant about how he wasn’t getting the critical support he deserved, and how the art intelligentsia were idiots, etc… Later, browsing through the Huntington bookstore, I ran across a deluxe edition of Songs of Innocence and of Experience. As I thumbed through this creamy volume, with its rich reproductions and detailed biographical annotations, I began to wonder at the complexity of this man and the magnificent legacy he left behind. -billmesnik.com
