Old book illustrations

Post Wed Apr 18, 2018 5:05 pm

Found a site with a ton of old book illustrations. It says they are all in the public domain as they are from books whose copyright has expired (a lot from the late 1800's) There are a ton of really cool pictures that would work for art for any project. They remind me a lot of the 1e illustrations.

Cool!

Moving to Artwork as this is more relevant there.

Here is one of many that they have. Quite a few that fit the fantasy genre.

A belated thanks for posting this. I thought the one below was especially dungeon fantasy appropriate.

This site is going to keep me busy today!
