Abstract

The exhibition at the Morgan Library and Museum of William Blake’s World: “A New Heaven Is Begun” (Sept. 2009-Jan. 2010) provided an opportunity to examine closely Blake’s Hebrew calligraphy. Three works in the exhibition contain errors in forming Hebrew characters; some are deliberate to create clever visual illusions.
