A Map of William Blake’s Life & Visions in Felpham’s Vale & Golgonooza
Here, on the banks of the Thames, Los builded Golgonooza.
Golgonooza, the spiritual fourfold city, is William Blake’s unique vision of London, continually building and continually decaying, a supreme challenge for the artistic imagination.
In its 30th anniversary year, the William Blake Society is delighted to present this limited edition map of Blake’s Golgonooza, an extraordinary feat of creativity from artist Andrea McLean, in conjunction with the Blake Society’s London walks coordinated and led by Henry Eliot.
This double-sided four-folded artwork simultaneously maps Golgonooza, Blake’s London, the Village of Felpham and Blake’s nuanced conception of The Four Zoas.
ANDREA MCLEAN was born in Denbighshire, Wales. She studied at Falmouth School of Art, the Slade School of Art and the British School at Rome on an Abbey Scholarship in Painting. Andrea’s painting ‘A Contemporary Mappa Mundi’ is on display at the British Library, near the Map Room, as part of their permanent collection. Andrea lives and works in Ledbury, Herefordshire.
HENRY ELIOT is a Trustee of the Blake Society. He is a writer and literary walker, currently co-creating an Alternative A to Z of London. www.henryeliot.co.uk
