Dore's "Bible Illustrations" is a very beautiful and nostalgic trip into Victorian book illustration. I remember these images from a multi- volume "Bible for Children" that I had as a child. I was parted from those books,but always remembered the images, and what a lasting effect they had on my spirituality, and my internal image of God. I was so happy to be able to buy the Dore "Bible Illustrations" from Amazon. I am an artist with a special interest in Victorian imagery,and will treasure this volume. The plates are masterful,dramatic,quaint,and somewhat mystical in feel. I think any person interested in Victorian art,and Christian iconography will enjoy this book.
