Gustave Dore's Illustrations of Don Quixote

For anyone unfamiliar with the works of Dore it can be difficult to know where to start. His incredibly productive life resulted in a huge body of work. But you might start with his illustrations of Don Quixote published in 1863.
Click on the image above to see one of my favorite prints from the collection. The following scene of the giants carved in half is another fantastic scene from the book.

And on the subject of Dore, here is another of my favorite works from him which I think is taken from his illustrated version of Orlando furioso.
