5.0 out of 5 stars Ethereal Haunting Quality 15 Aug 2012
By heretic666 TOP 500 REVIEWER
Dore must be considered one of the supreme illustrators of all time; I say illustrator rather than artist because of his ability to take the written word and produce a satifying image from it.
Most of us can conjure up pictures from words but the sheer scale and variety of his visions and the fertility of his imagination is only matched by the sheer quantity of his output.
I wont bother going into details about the contents of this book because one look at his idea of the celestial host or the apocalypse will force you to buy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gustave Dore Bible illustrations 4 Jun 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I originally bought this book years ago but lost it , so I was very pleased to get hold of a copy again .
Being a fan of Biblical stories this book with illustrations by Gustave Dore is superb especially those taken from the Old Testament . I was given an old family bible by my grandmother which was illustrated by Gustave Dore which I still have , so it is great to have those illustrations in a seperate volume .

5.0 out of 5 stars A very beautiful and inspiring book 15 Jun 1998
By Allen Holden - Published on Amazon.com
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Dore Bible Illustrations Dore 14 Mar 2000
By Robert R Cain - Published on Amazon.com
The Dore Bible Illustrations are magnificent. One looks at them and marvels at their intricasy and sensitivity. Everyone who sees this book asks how to obtain a copy. It is a brilliant and bright look backwards, like a trip to Sunday school. Special care has been taken to bind the book so that it will lie flat. Dover permits the use of the plates for creative endeavors, so for all the enthusiasts who like to make Greeting Cards for friends using scanned images, this is a wonderful tool. I highly recommend this book for every person who believes in Christ and I know this is wonderful to read and ponder before bedtime.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mystically Potent Illustrations 26 May 2005
By Peter Wittstock - Published on Amazon.com
THE DORE BIBLE ILLUSTRATIONS is the most highly praised and famous series of pencil drawings (turned into fine woodcuts by artisan engravers) crafted by the celebrated French illustrator, Paul Gustave Doré (1833-1883). These illustrations are inspired and memorable containing depictions of popular scenes and personalities as idealized conceptions, poetic and fanciful, from both the Jewish and Christian, biblical traditions. Doré's talent is mystically potent with his dramatic, chariscura renderings of moody heavens and skies; panoramic vistas and landscapes; and grand buildings and interiors, all to frame the engaging, spiritual dramas of salvation history. A moving, gallery stroll for young and old alike.

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspired Genius 30 Aug 2003
By Damian P. Gadal - Published on Amazon.com
Who better to do this work than Gustave Dore? No one! A master craftsman and artist, these illustrations are inspired genius.
The amount of work involved, the imagination, and the mastery of light are something to behold, ponder and enjoy.
The work compliments the subject matter perfectly!
We're blessed that these works have been passed down to us, as you just won't see this type of work anymore, not by hand and I doubt even by computer!

1.0 out of 5 stars A Blatant Alteration of the Dore's Original Work 2 Aug 2006
By Homeschool Mama - Published on Amazon.com
This work is a blatant example of revisionism. The first 2 plates have been "doctored" to remove the human form of God from the creation and garden of Eden accounts. While Dore's work is beautiful, this book is not an accurate representation of it.
