Custom white cloth-covered clamshell box.

"40 never before published images of Witkin's most recent work (including stunning color plates) seamlessly blend with 22 classic images from our recent Platinum Series titles. This is the first photographic book printed in a new 10 color, ultra high-resolution process on lush 100% cotton Arches paper. There are very few books of English poetry that exist in more editions than these Songs, but no edition before now has ever attempted to re-see Blake's actual Vision in the fabric of a later time. Witkin's Blake is as important a contribution to art as it is to mystical thought. The words of the greatest Western visionary of the late eighteenth and nineteenth centuries have now been translated into visual images by the greatest Western visionary of the late twentieth and twenty-first centuries, yet the timeless content of their work is the same."--the publisher
