The Marriage of Heaven and Hell: A Reading and Study.
by William Blake, Barbara Fahrner, Philip Gallo

An affinity with Blake's sense of the integrity of the artist's vision and self-created world has long been a salient characteristic of Barbara Fahrner's work. In this book, typography reflects the stylistic eccentricities of Blake's poem while Fahrner's drawings respond to its powerful statement. The commanding dimensionality and craftsmanship equally reference Blake's impassioned text as well as his own work as an artist/publisher.

Text designed and printed letterpress by Philip Gallo at The Hermetic Press. Original drawing and painting by Barbara Fahrner. Bound in cloth and paper over boards by Daniel E. Kelm and staff at the Wide Awake Garage. Housed in a cloth-covered clamshell box by Jill Jevne. All copies signed by Barbara Fahrner and Philip Gallo. Two Blakean drawings by Ms. Fahrner printed, handcolored, and given away with copies of the book. 11 hors commerce, 30 for sale, each numbered and signed by Fahrner.
