This double sided bookmark features the first two verses of the original text by William Blake, found in the preface Blake wrote for his epic ‘Milton, a Poem’, one of a collection of writings known as the ‘Prophetic Books’. These verses were set to music as the choral song ‘Jerusalem’ by Hubert Parry.

The image, ‘The Ancient of Days’, is the title of a design by William Blake, originally published as the frontispiece to a 1794 work, ‘Europe a Prophecy’.
