Free Vector Series: Old Scans

March 24, 2008


You never really know where you will find some good resources. I highly encourage all of you up-and-coming designers out there to scour the the garage sales, the used book stores and even the Goodwill! You will be truly amazed at what you will find. For instance, I found this book called, handbook of ornament by Franz Sales Meyer. The best part of this book was that right on the front really big is says, ” Attention: artists, designers, architects, craftsmen, students, librarians, researchers. Every illustration in this extensive archive may be used and reproduced WITHOUT PERMISSION & WITHOUT PAYMENT!” Seriously, this book is 50 years old and has nothing but plate and etchings in it. SO for those of you out there who can’t find this 50 year old book, I will give some scans out, starting today.  Enjoy!
