Dover Fascimiles

Ever walk by someone's desk and see some amazing book (snowflake photographs, medieval illustrations, the human skeleton coloring book) . . . and, yes, it turns out to be another one of those inexpensive books from Dover Publishing?  Well, peruse the catalogue for yourself:  you name it, they've got it.

Try the Pictorial Archive for Nautical Illustrations, Boydell's Shakespeare Prints, Medicinal Foods and Plants, Silhouettes, A Dictionary of Costume and Fashion, Wrought Iron Architecture, Antique Playing Cards, The American Revolution: A Picture Sourcebook, Weapons and Armor, 1001 Scrolls, Ornaments, and Borders . . .

Or try the Fine Art category for Gustave Dore's engravings, Rilke's Auguste Rodin, the Arthur Rackham Treasury, Walter Crane's Illustrations for the Faerie Queen, Edmund Dulac's Illustrations for Andersen's Fairy-tales, and other collections by William Blake, Childe Hassam, N. C. Wyeth, Aubrey Beardsley, Howard Pyle, Maxfield Parrish, Charles Dana Gibson, Rembrant, Cezanne, Holbein, Durer, da Vinci.

Such wonderful prints for so little.
