The Doré Gallery of Bible Illustrations - The Original Classic Edition


Dores 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. I am an artist with a special interest in Victorian imagery, and will treasure this volume. I think any person interested in Victorian art,and Christian iconography will enjoy this book.

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. I highly recommend this book for every person who believes in Christ and I know this is wonderful to read and ponder before bedtime.

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. Dorés 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.
