A Visit to William Blake's Inn

 A Visit to William Blake's Inn : Poems for Innocent and Experienced Travelers
Nancy Willard 1981
Illustrated by Alice and Martin Provensen

Poems for Innocent and Experienced Travelers

Wonderful illustrations by Alice and Martin Provensen. (Our shelf also has their “A Peaceable Kingdom”.) Willard wrote the poems and though not in Blake’s language, they are a fair homage and a good introduction to Blake’s "Songs of Innocence" (which of course we dug out and read afterwards).

We have a second copy of this in excellent paperback condition. Leave a comment, I'll pick a random winner and mail it to you FREE! (It's just my way of sharing the book obsession!)
