William Blake Hits The Web

I'm a huge fan of William Blake and would love to get a close-up look at some of his illuminated manuscripts in particular. The British Library has an exhibition of his notebook and they've handily posted a number of images online. Go here to see "The Tyger" in draft form and go here for more options. Fans of Philip Pullman's brilliant "His Dark Materials" trilogy, this is where he got some of his inspiration.
