A favourite amongst three discovered while perusing the nearly three hundred images using the search keyword “skeleton” available online at the British Museum’s collection database, this wonderfully peculiar illustration done by William Blake for Robert Blair’s poem, The Grave sits above the parlour of my imaginary dream home decorating in Gothic style. Yes, my heart is of a modernist, but it also will forever have a place for those things made by hand and imagination, far from the era of machines.
