Durer's Delightful Details

Some amazing 15th century etchings by Albrecht Durer, from The Complete Engravings, Etchings & Drypoints of Albrecht Durer, edited by Walter L. Strauss. I'll bet that Arthur Rackham looked these over!

The Penance of St. John Chrysotom
(that's him, crawling on hands and knees in the background!)

Hercules at the Crossroads

The Sea Monster

Madonna with the Monkey

Young Couple Threatened by Death; or, The Promenade

The Four Witches
