Vibrant Vintage Illustrations of Homer’s Iliad and Odyssey by Alice and Martin Provensen

Maria Propova at Brain Pickings.

"In 1956, New York’s Golden Press — makers of the fantastic Little Golden Books series — commissioned the Provensens to illustrate an adaptation of Homer for young readers, and The Iliad and the Odyssey: A Giant Golden Book ... was born — a stunning large-format volume, sadly relegated to the tragic out-of-print corner of culture, but still obtainable used."
