From the first pages of the book: "Gustave Doré's illustrations of the Old and New Testament scenes became the formative visions of scripture in most homes in the new world, and it is widely accepted today that Doré is vastly responsible for our collective imagery of biblical scenes. This is evident even throughout popular culture; Doré's engravings adorned the cover of Time Magazine, and his artistic style greatly influenced some of the early biblical films....
...Doré's true vidication as a painter came only after his death, when over 1.5 million people visited the Doré exhibition at the Art Institute of Chicago in 1986. In this current edition of Doré's biblical illustrations, his engravings are brought before us in exquisite quality and colors that bring back to life the artist's exceptional imagery of the book of books."
