This chapter marks Arthur Szyk's return to book illustrations after the war and the ways in which he created interconnections between his art and contemporary world events. In the years after the war book illustration continued to occupy a significant portion of Szyk's creative time. His next project was a series of illustrations for Pathways through the Bible, an abridged version of the Old Testament intended for young audiences. Here, again, Szyk found ways to connect his work to the recent world war. Both the author, Mortimer Cohen, and the illustrator provided dedications for the volume; Szyk's recalled his personal loss resulting from Nazi atrocities, thus connecting his art to the recent war. After exploring his work in Pathways through the Bible, the chapter also analyses his other works during the post-war period.
