Moon Boat Poet William Blake and his wife Catherine voyage in their imaginary moon boat. Pillows and blankets are a must.

Late in his life Blake drew moon boats to illustrate his poem Jerusalem and in a Dante illustration. "Blake’s yoking of moon and boat results in an image of both spiritual illumination and spiritual transportation from one state of moral consciousness to another," says scholar Nicholas O. Warner.
