THE BLAKE-VARLEY SKETCHBOOK
In the facsimile recently published by Heinemann’s a number of the pages have been inadvertently bound the wrong way round (the order is correct). Blake and Varley used the sketchbook both ways up so some of the oblong composition should in fact appear “upside-down”. Vertical compositions, as a general rule, were done with the bottom of the drawing at the outside edge of the page.begin page 48 |
The pages concerned are 9-10, 19-20, 35-6, 63-6, 71-98, 107-10, and 131-2.
