Philosopher Portraits (Engraving)

The four volume bookset »Socrates' Children« by Peter Kreeft was one of the most extensive projects I worked on to date. Among other things I had to illustrate an engraving style portrait of the 100 (!) most influential philosophers throughout history — from Solomon to G.K. Chesterton.


Here the portraits 50-55: St. Thomas Aquinas,  John Duns Scotus, William of Ockham, Meister Eckhart, Nicholas of Cusa and René Descartes.


Thanks again to Word on Fire for the opportunity and Chris Moyer for the amazing photos!
