Mitsumata and Blake

Mitsumata with embedded kelp from Felpham and a hole torn from the sheet after it was pulled from the mold.

Yesterday I pulled six sheets with embedded kelp I collected from the beach where William Blake lived for three years, from 1800 to 1803, on England’s south coast. I’m planning to make a tunnel book using his image of Newton, whose design–particularly the lichen and moss–resembles the kelp.
