The William Blake Archive is a digital humanities project first created in 1996. The project is sponsored by the Library of Congress and supported by the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Inspired by the Rossetti Archive, the archive provides digital reproductions of the various works of William Blake, a prominent Romantic-period poet, artist, and engraver, alongside annotation, commentary and scholarly materials related to Blake.
The archive, as a digital humanities project, offers high resolution images of Blake's work, including his illuminated books, watercolor paintings, commercial engravings, tempera paintings, large-color prints, and manuscripts, providing scholars and students an opportunity to research the complexity and scope of his creative output often not available by viewing the scholarly print editions.
