Biblical Illustrations for Easter Sunday

These beautiful color lithographs were printed at the Avil Printing Company in Philadelphia around 1888. The colors seem to be as intense today as the day they were printed. Just one thing to love about color lithographs from this time. Happy Easter to all!These illustrations were in ‘The Beautiful Story: A Companion Book to the Holy Bible’ written and edited by J.W. Buel.  Published by Peerless Publishing Co., Cincinnati, Ohio. Copyright, 1887, by H.S. Smith.

About redbudart

I live in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, just outside of Portland, Oregon. My passions are cuisine, wine, horticulture, art, and my two grown children who couldn't be farther away, and couldn't be any more wonderful than they are. I moved here in 2014, work a day job in finance, and spend the rest of my time working on my dream of living off the land, and teaching young people how to as well. Stop by my Etsy shops, where all proceeds are going towards the goal. Thank you and Namaste!
