It's a bit early to answer your questions, Dana Harden--since we're just
getting started (and the project has a 3-year trajectory).  Copyright
issues, etc., will be worked out along the way.  The quality of scans is a
major concern--and high-quality reproduction is one of the primary aims of
the project.

We'll post progress reports now and then.  And, of course, anyone equipped
with a Web browser might want to look in on us now and then to see what's
happening.  Thanks for your interest.  Morris Eaves (for Bob Essick and Joe

Incidentally, if anyone happens to be in London they should see the Royal
Academy's Summer Exhibition (I think it's still going on).  The first thing
you see as you walk in is a huge sculpture of Newton, based on Blake's
well-known design.  (I can't remember the name of the sculptor, but I have
the program at home.)  I found it especially ironic given Blake's vexed
relationship with the Academy during his lifetime.

Does anyone know how I can contact Paul Mellon? I am looking for possible
sources of funding for the Milton Opera. If anyone has ideas about who I can
send our wonderful info packet to, I would appreciate it. We are doing an
initial performance on Nov 25 & 26 in Boulder this year, two days before
Blake's birthday.
