    Feathers from tufted tits

  2. Navin_Johnson says:

    All this time it was Tarzan and Jane instead of “Adam & Eve”.

  3. Count Ulster says:

    Didn’t know Brylcreem was available in the stone age.

    An lo, God said, “Give them Product”, and he saw it was good.  

    I guess bad hair was another side effect of getting kicked out of the garden. 

  5. William Joseph Dunn says:

    She killed a Muppet for her frock. It could be either Grover or Cookie Monster. I can’t tell.

  6. Ricardo Torres de Acha says:

    Come on! Lapiz Lazuli + Wool = Blue Wool… you don’t even need a crafting table…

  7. GlenBlank says:

    Looks more like the Bronzer Age to me.

  8. Nell Anvoid says:

    Well, there’s a sure sign that our ancestors were tossed from the garden: look at those teeth. Pretty sure Dentists hadn’t yet emerged from the primordial slime.  Especially ironic if the garden was actually in England…

    (Easy there, Brits! You get a cornucopia of opportunities for cheap shots at us Yanks. Allow us once in a while.)

  9. Sagodjur says:

    Heck, it’s even biblically inaccurate. If that’s supposed to be Adam and Eve in the garden, they wouldn’t have had a kid yet. They didn’t have Cain, Abel, Seth, and the rest of the unnamed progeny until after the fall.

    The only place I’ve seen that shade of blue in the wild, has been in old women’s hair. So I’m guessing there’s a bald bronze age grandma just out of shot.

  11. Ramone says:

    Of course Eve was blonde! And they look exceedingly gleeful for people who’ve just doomed all of humanity to a lifetime of Original Sin. Christ, what assholes!

  12. Nash Rambler says:

    So I guess the Garden of Eden was located in a west Malibu gated community or something.  That baby frightens me most of all.

  13. Funk Daddy says:

    Lush vegetation hides the dinosaurs. Lame.

  14. franko says:

    they did a good job downplaying adam’s nipple shot, too. (and btw, does the bible explain why adam had nips in the first place?)

  15. Lupus_Yonderboy says:

    So I read the title really quickly and I thought that it was “Bible Fists”. Man, I really want that to be a thing.

  16. Lee Brown says:

    Weird thing is I have this book at home from when I was a kid, plus several others from the same publisher.

  17. Whoa, who new that haircare was such a priority back then.

  18. CHilke says:

    Adam and Eve need Lebensraum

  19. pjcamp says:

    Aryan Adam and Eve on Yahweh’s golf course.

  20. sean says:

    LOVE that well-groomed look! “Brylcreem, a little dab’ll do ya, Brylcreem, you’ll look so debonair! Brylcreem, the girls’ll all go to ya, you’ll love the natural look it gives your hair…”

  21. feetleet says:

    I don’t know how to break this to you, Adam, but Eve seems to have been ribbed for someone else’s pleasure. Snake, you devil!

  22. Aeron says:

    Bibles first, historical accuracy second.

  23. Cassie Smith says:

    It’s Tom Cruise!

  24. apoxia says:

    I had this series of books as a child. Weird, I didn’t remember that until I saw this scan. It brought back some old memories!

  25. Will England says:

    Heh.  I went out of my way to buy the whole series just for the illustrations.  Cost me a pretty penny, but they are just something to behold.  Not good, but certainly something.
