Blake/An Illustrated Quarterly went online with its summer 2011 issue; the first issue of volume 45, featuring G. E. Bentley, Jr.’s “William Blake and His Circle: A Checklist of Publications and Discoveries in 2010.”

Upcoming issues will include articles by Jennifer Davis Michael on Blake and Mary Oliver, Morton D. Paley on Blake and painter George Romney, and Angus Whitehead on the last years of William Blake’s wife Catherine.  We invite you to take a look at the homepage and table of contents of the current issue.  Subscribers will have access to the fully searchable, illustrated content in both HTML and PDF format.

Online publication was made possible by Open Journal Systems and close cooperation with a team of experts at the Rush Rhees Library, University of Rochester.

Parallel publication of the journal in printed format will continue during the current volume.  Meanwhile, forty years of back issues (1968-2008) are now being integrated into the William Blake Archive.  The work is well underway, and the first installments are expected to appear in 2012.
