The Great Day of His Wrath
John Martin, ca. 1851
A few of the 25 amazing woodcuts from Apocalipsis cum figuris, 1498, by Albrecht Dürer.
This book was recently digitized by the Houghton Library at Harvard. The illustrations are thought to have been hand-coloured according to Dürer’s own specifications.
All of the images can be viewed online.
“What if it happens? What if our worst fears are realized? If the Dead walk, the continuation of the human race will become a daily struggle. Are you prepared to protect and defend your family and friends?”
