Salvador Dali Divine Comedy, a poem by Dante Alighieri (1265-1321), was illustrated by Dali between 1951 and 1960. Dali created 101 watercolor 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 by two different editors with a total of 4765 books, an Italian edition of 3188, and later in 1974 as a German edition with a stated size of 1000. 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. The size of each sheet is about 13″ x 10 1/3″ with an image size of 7 1/4″ x 9 1/2″.
