Stories from the Bible, 1957

(Continued from 1956)

For 1957, the format of the series changed from "comic-strip" to more "illustrated children's stories".  Irving Novick continued, doing some of the most beautiful, gorgeous work I have ever seen from him!

Once again, the series starts over from the beginning, with the 3rd version of "The Creation", followed by "The Garden of Eden".  For the 1st time, we see the story of "Cain and Abel", followed by the 3rd version of "Noah's Ark", the 2nd versions of "The Tower Of Babel" and "Abraham and Lot", the 1st version of "Jacob", and finally, the 3rd version of "The Nativity".
