Looking for Jerusalem

The Frontispiece from William Blake’s Jerusalem: the Emanation of the Giant Albion. The image is (edited: thank you, EleanorB) Los Entering the Grave: Los, the spirit of creativity, is carrying a globe of light as he descends into Albion’s tomb. I’ve always found Blake’s mythopoeic works unreadable — they’re Bible fanfic, all right, but on LSD — but I love his art more all the time.
