    The Tiger, by William Blake.jpeg

    From the album: Poems copied out by Mercian

    Because Stripy Cat is ♥️ 😊 Also because this famous poem is immediately striking and also rewards deeper, more-contemplative reading. Blake engraved this poem more than once, and different copies contain varying punctuation. I have retained some elements of Blake’s 18th-century punctuation, but have updated the spelling of the name of the eponymous stripy cat (from “Tyger” to ‘Tiger’), and have replaced Blake’s “sieze” with the currently-accepted spelling ‘seize’. Paper: an A4 sheet of wide-lined (8mm line separation) 70gsm paper from a ‘WH Smith’ brand refill pad. Pen: Pilot Metropolitan with ‘CM’ nib. Ink: Pilot ‘Blue/Black’ from a cartridge.

    London by William Blake.jpeg

    From the album: Poems copied out by Mercian

    This poem is not exactly ‘cheery’, but it is one of my favourite works by William Blake. I scrawled it on a sheet taken from a ‘WH Smith’ A4 pad of wide-lined 70gsm paper. The pen is a Parker Vector with the ‘F’ nib of a calligraphy set. I don’t perceive it as being particularly ‘Fine’. On the other hand, at least it is ‘wet’ enough to lay down enough of this ink (Waterman ‘Havana’) to make me perceive it as being a shade of ‘brown’.
