These illustrations, drawn from the old testament, were in ‘The Great Stories of the Bible’, published in 1924. There are 24 full page illustrations, and no credit given to an illustrator! What a shame, for he or she had such great talent. They nailed the three C’s of harmony and balance : composition, color, and contrast. The pictures capture your eye, and you stay there, drawn to the people’s plight, or their dream, or elations. Maybe it’s just me, seeing the figures that captured my imagination for so long, in almost living color. They are absolutely delightful!
