David Bindman traces the artist's ideas as they are gradually developped through Blake's art, and explores in depth the effects, personnal and professional, of influential contemporaries such as Flaxman and Fuseli.

The book encompasses all phases of Blake's art, including the highly complex Illuminated Books.
