Catherine Sophia Boucher Blake
Birth: Apr. 25, 1762
Battersea
London Borough of Wandsworth
Greater London, England
Death: Oct. 18, 1831
Marylebone
City of Westminster
Greater London, England

Wife and assistant to William Blake. Daughter of a market-gardener, she was illiterate when she married in 1782. By 1784 she not only could read and write but had become Blake's assistant, learning all the delicate finishing techniques for his prints and engravings. Later she helped him throughout the production of his Songs of Innocence, finally stitching the loose papers into covers. She died four years after her husband's death and they are buried together. (bio by: julia&keld)
