Example text

The artist-poet taught his wife to read and write; soon she was able to copy his manuscripts and even color his engravings. Her sensitive willingness to humor his many moods balanced in some measure his high-strung and nervous temperament. Before the advent of psychoanalysis into our civilization, Blake was often called mad. But now we know that this was scarcely the word to describe his overpowering belief in visions and the supernatural. Blake invented a process by which he lettered words and drew pictures with an acid-resistant medium on copper-plate, then etched it with acid.

Some time later, after Bewick had left the shop, the book was published. Bewick’s old master thought so well of the cuts that he sent them to London where they received a prize of seven guineas from the Society of Arts. Too insistent application to his work caused a breakdown in Bewick’s health. He found it necessary to concentrate on regaining his health. He had often walked from Newcastle to Cherryburn in order to see his parents, setting out after seven in the evening to walk a distance of more than eleven miles.

The master printer, his son and grandson, all made printing history. Ratdolt, a native of Augsburg, worked in Venice and followed Aldus in importance. He was a skillful and conscientious craftsman, and to him is attributed the first decorative title page. He was also the first to print in color, using two impressions of the press and improving upon the laborious hand coloring that preceded it. To John Froben, printer of Basle and friend of the great scholar Erasmus, may be credited the discovery of Hans Holbein.
