Format: Paperback
Dore, known perhaps best for his woodcuts of Dante's "Divine Comedy", was not only a fantastic illustrator, but a prolific one as well, producing scores of woodcuts for great literature, including "The Holy Bible" and "Orlando Furioso". Before there were movies, a person could look at these pictures for motion, excitement, and dramatic storytelling.
This is a necessary companion to "Paradise Lost", a great work in its own right. Dore's illustrations clarifies, vivifies, and expands on the reading experience. The pictures are brilliantly reproduced here at a small cost to the consumer. The book stands alone for great artwork and is worth the minimal price.

Format: Paperback
This is with out a doubt the best of Gustave's biblically inspired works. His mastery is proven by creating a visually stunning and poetic world of a time long ago but not forgotten. It's hard to remember what I used to imagine when I thought of the Garden of Eden or the descension of the fallen angels must've been like prior to reading this work.

I absolutley appreciate the gifts and the ability to illustrate and these prints are magnificant. I don't have the words to use to describe these works of art. If a student of art is looking for great art then I recommend this as reference and to add to ones owen collection.

I purchased a series of Dore collection books for my mother, who is an artist, and has drawn inspiration from Dore's work. Dore's woodcuts are timeless and if this theme appeals to you then you will be very happy.

I have always adored Gustave Dore's engravings on many media. Being into all things angels and demons related, I'm enthralled with the moody atmosphere depicted in here with such an aura of mejesticity that only Gustave Dore could muster. It captures the spirit of Milton's poem right on.
