Dear and esteemed members of IUOMA,
I would like to put forward the proposal to declare William Blake (1757-1827) the Patron Saint of Mail Artists. You can download this letter as pdf and pass it on:
With love and respect
Yours faithfully, xxJones

This group does not have any discussions yet.
Very cool that you were finally able to identify the piece and the artist, Nadia. :)
The painting in Guido's collage is by Gustave Moreau.
Blake' s Birthday(and mine, he's a bit older than me of course) Coming up on the 28th!!!! Fine Books Magazine just came out with a CD-Rom of "Book of Urizen"-- but I'd rather have the book in my hands then read Blake on a "puter" My guess is the the CD has all kinds of high tech "buzz's and whistles" to make you want to buy it????
I am a member of the Blake Society. See You here.
I give you the end of a golden string,
Only wind it into a ball:
It will lead you in at Heavens gate,
Built in Jerusalem’s wall.
William Blake, Jerusalem.
