From One Visionary to Another: William Blake's Illustrations

The Blake Archive is a hypermedia archive sponsored by the Library of Congress and supported by a consortium of universities such as the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, the University of Rochester and the University of California, Riverside—so credibility is hardly a problem here! This page is a treasure of links to Blake's drawings of Milton's epic poem. If you are familiar with Blake's work, you know you are in for a wild ride!
