About the Author

Martin Myrone is senior curator of pre-1800 British art at Tate and visiting tutor in the history of art at the University of York. His books include The Blake Book and Bodybuilding: Reforming Masculinities in British Art, 1750-1810. Amy Concannon is curator of British art, 1790-1850, at Tate. Alan Moore is widely regarded as one of the most influential writers in the history of comics. His acclaimed graphic novels include From Hell and V for Vendetta.


Published to accompany the major, one-stop-only Blake retrospective now at the Tate Britain (through Feb. 2), this beautiful book distills the spirit of the revolutionary poet, artist and prophet-saint of what we now call social justice. The scholar E. P. Thompson once said that to study Blake (1757-1827) is to realize that there are "a great many William Blakes." And there's a new one to be found here at every turn of the page.---Holland Cotter, The New York Times
Times Critics' Top Art Books of 2019
With its art-historical focus, [William Blake] helpfully contextualizes Blake while still acknowledging his originality. Thus, it will be especially valuable for those new to Blake and the art of his time, but it will also be useful to Blake scholars focused on literature.---D.D. Schierenbec, Choice
