Fritz Eichenberg was one of the world's most sought-after illustrators of literary classics, including The Brothers Karamazov and Crime and Punishment, as well as works by Edgar Allan Poe, Dylan Thomas, the Brontë sisters, and others. Born in Cologne, Germany in 1901, he learned lithography, wood-engraving, and etching and by his early twenties had produced masterful illustrations for Gulliver's Travels and Till Eulenspiegel. He came to the United States in 1933 and over the next five decades produced an astonishing range of individual images and book illustrations. Throughout his life, he was preoccupied with the tragedy of war. He became a close friend and great supporter of Dorothy Day and The Catholic Worker and used his art to express his hope for more justice in the world.

He also engraved images relating to the life of Christ, as well as for Dorothy Day's autobiography The Long Loneliness. In addition, he created beautiful prints related to the Old Testament and fine portraits of other spiritual leaders such as Lao-Tsu and Mahatma Gandhi, which we are glad to offer here.
