Blake/An Illustrated Quarterly was born as the Blake Newsletter on a mimeograph machine at the University of California, Berkeley, in 1967. Edited by Morton D. Paley, the first issue ran to nine pages, was available for a yearly rate of two dollars for four issues, and included the fateful words “As far as editorial policy is concerned, I think the Newsletter should be just that—not an incipient journal.” The production office relocated to the University of New Mexico when Morris Eaves became coeditor in 1970, then moved with him in 1986 to its present home at the University of Rochester. In 1977, on its tenth anniversary, the Newsletter became An Illustrated Quarterly, formalizing the shift that had already occurred from brief news items and queries to articles and reviews.

The journal is indexed by the MLA International Bibliography, ABELL (Annual Bibliography of English Language and Literature), Scopus (Elsevier), and Arts and Humanities Citation Index and Current Contents—Arts and Humanities (Thomson Reuters).
