Taken from the publisher's notes:
Gustave Doré was the most popular and successful French book illustrator of the mid 19th century. Drawing designs on the woodblocks directly, he executed thousands of engravings, each one a splendid example of his skill and imagination. His copious works enjoyed worldwide sales. The plates included in this book were compiled from some of the following Doré books: Cervantes’s Don Quixote (1863), Milton’s Paradise Lost (1866), The Holy Bible (1866), Tennyson’s Idyl

!!چه تخیلی
!!چه مهارتی
نقاشی های قوی و رویایی اون هم روی چوب
تصاویری که فقط واسه تو کتاب بودن کم هستند...باید قاب بشن و برن رو دیوار تا همیشه چشمت بهشون بیفته
بخش هایی از تصویرگری های گوستاو دوره برای کتاب های عظیم و شاهکاری مثل دن کیشوت،بهشت گمشده،کمدی الهی و تصاویری از کتاب مقدس و جنگ های صلیبی و
...

تنها ایراد از من بود که در جریان داستان کتابهایی که تصویرگری شده بودند نبودم...هرچند نقاشی ها انگیزه ای شدند که دنبال داستانشون هم برم
Mohammad Ali
این کتاب گزیده ای است از طرح های گوستاو دوره برای کتاب های کلاسیک - مثل کتاب مقدس، کمدی الهی دانته، بهشت گمشده ی میلتون و ... . این طرح ها در واقع با نوع خاصی از چاپ و با کمک کنده کاری چوپ - به عنوان پذیرنده ی جوهر - مقدور شده اند و از همین رو نباید آنها را نقاشی به معنای رایج کلمه دانست

بخش های مربوط به "یهودی سرگردان"، "دون کیشوت"، "آتالا"، "کتاب مقدس"، "کمدی الهی"، "زیارت لندن" و "تاریخ جنگ های صلیبی" چیزهای جالبی درشون بود و حتی چند مورد شاهکار واقعی - مثلا در دون کیشوت

Mahdi
فعلاً یه نگاه سریع بهش انداختم. نقاشی ها خیلی خوب بودن. بعضیاش رو قبلاً دیده بودم (نقاشی های دون کیشوت خیلی معروف هستن، همین طور یکی از نقاشی های بهشت گمشده که فرشته ها رو نشون میده که گرد هم پرواز میکنن)
بعداً باز باید با دقت بیشتر ببینم.
ممنون از دوستانی که معرفی کردن.
