Salvador Dali Divine Comedy, a poem by Dante Alighieri (1265-1321), was illustrated by Dali be- tween 1951 and 1960. Dali created 101 watercolour drawings to interpret the Salvador Dali Divine Comedy. These works have been reproduced using a wood engraving technique. With this technique, wood engravers carved 3500 blocks for the prints that make up the Salvador Dali Divine Comedy. 100 woodblocks were published as a French edition,an Italian edition and later in 1974 as a German edition. Each volume has a title page, a table of contents, and justification page contained in a cardboard slip case with matching inner boards. Each woodblock from the Salvador Dali Divine Comedy is part of a Canto or book chapter which is about 8 pages in length.
