The Divine Comedy

In 1969, Leonard Baskin painted 120 large scale drawings for his seminal rendition of Dante Alighieri’s The Divine Comedy. These powerful works typify both the artist’s and the writer’s unflinching dedication to the universal qualities of the human condition. We are proud to present this groundbreaking collection. See the artwork here.

The work was published in Thomas G. Bergin’s translation. Grossman Publishers, New York, 1969.

Monumental Woodcuts Catalog

Baskin almost single-handedly revived the Monumental sized woodcut as an art form, but he was also comfortable working on a miniature scale. He mastered the techniques of lithography, engraving, color block prints and monotypes. The range of his print work over a fifty-year career is truly astounding.

Did You Say Ghosts?

There’s no such thing as spooks or ghosts. I guarantee it … well, almost.
And if there were, the werewolves’ bay would scare even a ghost away.

So begins a deliciously scary cumulative tale, with the series of possible monsters that follow each scared of something else. Kids will enjoy the humor as well as the slight shiver that these all-star spooks bring.

Enriched by noted artist Leonard Baskin’s gallery of frightful imaginings, this is not a bedtime book, for the skeletons, witches, and other spooky creatures conjured up will lull no child to sleep! Instead, this is a humorous and spine-chilling repetitive story for older children.
