Hundreds of Lost William Blake Etchings Found

Here's a big find for both literature and art. Researchers at the University of Manchester’s John Rylands Library have identified about 350 engraved plates designed by William Blake. Art historian Colin Todd and his students spent two years combing through more than a million books, records and pieces of art to find the lost treasure, and many of the engravings will be displayed next month at the library. Blake, who died in 1827, is now considered one of the great Romantic poets as well as a visionary artist.
