Blake @ Union Exhibit poster

This exhibit is a companion to a research website showcasing the works of author, artist, and printmaker William Blake to be released on teh Schaffer Library website in late April, 2018. The development of the website would not have been possible without Union College's extensive collection of print facsimilies of Blake's illuminated books and commercial works. The presentation online of an enhanced catalog of this collection and the digitization of selected images, undertaken to inspire and promote student creativity, forever intertwines the digital with the print. Our goal is to use the advantages of digitization to create a greater awareness of the physical collection, draw researchers to it, and perpetuate conversations among students for years to come.
