The Gospels According to Dore is a celebration of the master engraver's illustrations of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. The book showcases the emotional core of each work in magnified format, revealing some of the most astonishingly detailed and passionate work ever seen in the medium; thousands of fine lines coalescing into shape and shadow, and conveying a sense of tremendous energy and emotion. Each face is revealed to be a mirror, showing us that people laughed and wept, mocked and trembled, felt love and awe and sorrow, and that these faces - engraved by men centuries ago and portraying humans millennia ago - are not that distant from our own emotions in our own time. Accompanied by the corresponding scriptures taken from the King James Version of The Holy Bible (KJV), the reader will embark upon a visual journey of spiritual clarity and learn to see that which has been beloved and familiar for centuries in an entirely new way.
