WILLIAM BLAKE AND THE GLASTONBURY GNOSIS
Is a unique expansive odyssey, inspired by the great visionary poet artist.
It combines history, mythology, and mysticism, in a living journey of Imagination.
Written and published in Glastonbury, it is an expression of the alchemical blend the place somehow inspires and is presented in the hope of bringing forth in its readers something of the same feelings that were involved in writing it.
