Question:Thank you for publishing these old Bible illustrations. When my children were small, I used to read Bible stories to them from a book that had illustrations such as these. I prefer them to the modern illustrations. The modern children's Bible stories are terrible. The illustrations are simply cartoons. Children have Saturday morning television for that sort of thing. As adults, we need to take these stories seriously. Though very small, my children preferred books with these illustrations as well. Just like adults, children know good artwork and appreciate it.
The older illustrations are far more detailed and those keeps the attention longer as you look for the small things illustrated. The cartoon style only focuses on the main event and misses the other information mentioned in the Bible but not illustrated.
I'm glad you find the pictures enjoyable, and I hope useful.
