§ Limited to "300" copies of which 40 were hand-bound and maybe 100 copies completed in all -- exceptionally scarce (and beautiful) -- we have had one copy in the last 30 years. Ingmire here reproduces his calligraphic version of Blake’s famous poem, printed found in the "Notebook" (1787-1818). Thomas Ingmire was the first American to be elected a Fellow of the prestigious Society of Scribes and Illuminators, London. A vivid expression of the modern calligraphy movement, his work can be found in public and private collections around the world; it is the subject of Michael Gullick's Words of Risk: The Art of Thomas Ingmire (1989) and codici 1: a teacher's notebook on modern calligraphy & lettering art (2003). His teaching experience and influence extends throughout the United States to Canada, Europe, Australia, Japan and Hong Kong. Item #123980
