gustave doré






i love paul gustave doré's illustrations for one of the greatest book of all times: the divine comedy of medieval poet dante alighieri. a few days ago i also bought the dvd with the filmic adaption "l'inferno" (1911) by giuseppe de liguoro. the movie is nearly one hundred years old - but it generates such a deep and haunting atmosphere that most of the stuff which runs in cinemas today looks really amateurish.
