This old translation of Homer into English verse by George Chapman is excellent, but this book makes it a little difficult to read: the pentameters or heptameters used by Chapman could be printed with a bigger font size, at the limit that would just avoid splitting most lines, reduced margins, a little more spacing between lines.
Also, the Iliad and the Odyssey together, 24 books each (not 12 like the Aeneid!), that makes a very thick volume even in small print. Two volumes would be preferable. Some (apocryphal) episode titles, within each book, would also help and make the lot more digestible. Illustrations are also possible, why not? There is so much Greek pottery on the subject.
