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

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

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.

This collection is a "must have" for any art lover, especially those who adore old-school illustrations, amongst which I count myself. Dorè's art is astonishingly good, and he doesn't even need to use colour to make them more appealing. His work looks like how those classic grand oil paintings would if you took the colour away.

My personal favourites were the Don Quixote collection, Charlemagne's Vision, the Bible illustrations and his Paradise Lost ones (his best work, in my opinion) and the Idy
