William Blake (1757-1827) was a British poet, painter, engraver, and printer. Blake developed an unorthodox method of printmaking called relief etching, which he referred to as “illuminated printing,” and used to print his own books. Blake’s practices of crafting a dialog between text and image and controlling all aspects of book production are reflected in the individualist spirit of today’s book arts. This exhibit includes examples from the Special Collections of the Haas Family Arts Library of work by contemporary artists who have been influenced by William Blake’s legacy.
The Personal Librarian program at the Divinity Library has recently got a facelift! The new interactive page includes a "search" feature which makes it possible to look up a student's Personal Librarian simply by typing the student's name or NetID.
