Author of the Month - William Blake

Throughout this series, we will be writing a short overview of artists, poets, play writes and sculptors all of whom have helped shape Rollo London into the stunning stationery and notebook brand you see today. Each collection will continue to be dedicated to an artist we have been inspired by during the creation of a new range.

The first in the series is William Blake, born 28th November 1757 of British origin. He attended school until he was able to read and write, leaving at the age of 10. Further education was undertaken by his mother Catherine Blake.

Blake, known best as an English poet, painter and print maker. As with many artists, Blake was unrecognised during his life, but is now considered a seminal figure in the history of poetry and visual arts.
