The Dante Binding

For this beautiful early 20th century edition of Dante’s Divine Comedy, the design focus is on several iconic elements found in this incredibly important masterpiece of literature... the sorrowful profile of a woman becoming immersed into the forest of self-murderers, a nod to the terraces of mount purgatory, and on the back cover.. Lucifer’s lower half trapped in ice while devouring Judas.
