This collection originally titled “For children” and later retitled by Blake “For the Sexes” is akin to an emblem book and contains some of Blake’s most powerful images in tiny format. “I want, I want” with the man at the foot of ladder to the stars, or “Help, Help” with a man drowning in rough seas, are typical.
