World Mission Collection Clip Art Graphics

The World Mission Collection is a delightful collection which tells the story from Genesis to Revelation. Actually there are two volumes here.

Volume 1 contains black and white woodcut illustrations by Julius Schnoor von Carolsfeld copied from Das Buch der B├╝cher in Bilden . There are 3 parts in this 240 image volume: i) Part A (Genesis to Ruth), ii) Part B (Samuel to Daniel), and iii) Part C (New Testament). The picture to the left shows "Joseph's reunion with his brother" (Genesis 45) from Vol 1, Part A.

Volume 2 contains water color Bible illustrations done for "Communicating Christ" in Bogota, Colombia. Part A contains images from the Old Testament, while Part B contains New Testament images. The picture to the left shows "Jesus at Twelve in the Temple" (Luke 2:41-29) from Vol 2, Part B.
