TIGER | This detail of a giclée print called "Tiger" by illustrator Alice Duke is the perfect embodiment of the William Blake poem that begins with the line, "Tyger! Tyger! burning bright. / In the forests of the night." You can buy a gorgeous poster of this print, and check out more of Duke's sumptuous drawings on her blog.

I read Blake alot and don't know where those tusks in the picture came from. I always thought a tiger made of fire would this fit the poem better.
