Here are some illustrations from a 1917 copy of Münchhausen which I recently got really cheap on a flea market here in Berlin. The drawings are - obviously - by the incredible Gustave Doré, one of my personal runner-ups for Greatest Graphic Artist of the Known Universe. This is one of his lesser known works, so some of you might not have seen these before. It's been really hard to make a selection from the countless brilliant drawings in the book. I'm not quite pleased with the one presented here, but I think any other would have been equally dissatisfying.
