The Lamb (William Blake)[edit]

Voting period is over. Please don't add any new votes. Voting period ends on 31 Jan 2013 at 23:15:52 (UTC)

OriginalWilliam Blake's The Lamb, in Blake's original printing and illustration.
Reason
Very few copies of Blake's original works exist, and this is, while not as big as I'd prefer for FPC (slightly under recommended size), still decently sized, with sufficient size to get the detail in, and rather attractive.

  • Support as nominator --Adam Cuerden (talk) 23:15, 22 January 2013 (UTC)
  • Support A very good picture. AutomaticStrikeout (TC) 14:46, 23 January 2013 (UTC)
  • Note (for others to consider) at 1,384 × 1,892 pixels, the image is under the minimum size requirements. Although I would opt to keep the wide border for the reasons stated, that also has to be considered when thinking about the size of the file.

    • I did note that it was undersize in my statement, but I apologise if this was insufficient emphasis. Adam Cuerden (talk) 23:09, 23 January 2013 (UTC)
  • I'm sorry Adam, somehow I missed that part of your nomination. In any case, I've save the viewer the question of exactly what dimensions it is. Grandiose (me, talk, contribs) 23:12, 23 January 2013 (UTC)
  • Eh, probably for the best, if this one passes, it should pass in full knowledge of the limitation, so a little more emphasis isn't a problem. And there's a much bigger Blake file up for FPC as well [Song of Los, just above this]. Adam Cuerden (talk) 23:17, 23 January 2013 (UTC)
  • Support While this is a scan not the original so it doesn't really fall under the historical exception I question the feasibility of getting a bigger scan of this to upload so there's no reason not to give the size a pass. It's of high quality and high EV. Cat-fivetc ---- 16:51, 24 January 2013 (UTC)
  • Support Valuable since it features the author's own illustration. Brandmeistertalk 15:37, 31 January 2013 (UTC)
  • Support for historic value. I wish the image was clearer and less faded but with paper this old I can accept this being as it is. We can do a D&R if we get something better. --Pine 20:23, 31 January 2013 (UTC)
