Update on 2/11/05: I took these down to conserve some web space and display some newer stuff. If you wanna see these let me know.
For anyone interested: An edition of Milton’s poem “On the Morning of Christ’s Nativity” appeared in 1923 (according to our Hughes book) with six illustrations by William Blake. These beautiful illustrations are:
The Descent of Peace
The Annunciation to the Shepherds
The Old Dragon
The Overthrow of Apollo and the Pagan Gods
The Flight of Moloch
The Night of Peace
Please appreciate these were kind of a pain in the ass to get on this site. Some people and sites don’t like to share, but since Blake has been dead for almost 180 years, and these are for academic use…well that screams public domain and fair use to me. So I stol…umm I mean I borrowed them for academic use. But in case some people disagree with me, hurry up and look at’em!
