Dear and esteemed members of IUOMA,

With love and respect

Yours faithfully, xxJones

Very cool that you were finally able to identify the piece and the artist, Nadia. :)

This piece by Guido Vermeulen was entitled, "HELL and HEAVEN were invented by Mother - aTribute to William Blake and Lynn Radford." I treasure it, as I do all of the pieces Guido sent me over the years, but with an additional fondness....

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.
