October 2018 News

It has just been confirmed that the 2019 Rare Book Fair will be held at Wilson Hall, Melbourne University, from Friday 12 July to Sunday 14 July.  We hope you can join us in Melbourne for the Fair.

William Blake 1757-1827.
Considered insane and largely disregarded by his peers, the visionary poet and engraver is now recognised among the greatest contributors to English literature and art.
We have a few more of the facsimiles of Blake's engravings for The Book of Job which proved to be so popular last time we listed some a few years ago.
They are considered to be his greatest masterpieces in the medium of engraving.  These facsimiles are héliogravures produced in 1906 using Blake's original 1825/6 engravings. 
With its subtle tonality, the héliogravure technique achieves a degree of fine detail and a rich palette of blacks and shades of grey that modern industrial printing methods - such as rotogravure, letterpress and offset - simply cannot match.
At a very reasonable $125 each, you can enjoy Blake's extraordinary visions with a 100+ year old image that is virtually indistinguishable from the 200 year old original engraving.
We'll be listing them over the next 2 weeks.

Every day we receive dozens of Emails, tweets and messages from a diverse range of colleagues and institutions who send informative articles, upcoming and current exhibitions, research and just plain breath-taking and cute images.  We regularly  post a selection on our Facebook page.


We "tweet' when a new item is listed so follow us on Twitter at @litscrip.
