Product Description

From the Back Cover

This immensely usable archive of vintage illustrations not only offers a wonderful window on the goods and merchandise of a bygone era, but is an absolute treasure trove of easily reproducible graphic art as well.
Some 2,300 cuts culled from such rare nineteenth-century periodicals as "The Art Journal," "The Illustrated London News," "The Scientific American," and "The Youth's Companion" have been organized in convenient categories: clothes, furniture, kitchenware, toys and games, musical instruments, stationery supplies, domestic accessories, and much more.
Among them are detailed and highly reproducible illustrations of fans, corsets, toiletry kits, jewelry, roller skates, a baby carriage, bicycles, baseball gloves, a pencil sharpener, crayons, fountain pen, typewriter, drafting tools, compass, microscope, feather duster, parasol, small table with smoking paraphernalia, high-topped "storm slippers," and hundreds of other objects.

So far this is my fave of these source books. Ive used many of the pics coloured and plain in my collages. Such fun to see so many utensils being used today just in fancy colours and plastics.

HASH(0x911f2fd8) out of 5 stars A Useful Reference Tool 7 Feb. 2007

HASH(0x911f4048) out of 5 stars Victorian Goods and Merchandise 7 May 2008
By Dolly Varden-Chambers - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
A fascinating book, with wonderful illustrations, it could have been made much more interesting and enjoyable with some description of the items and their use. If this had cost a little more, it would have been worth it. Some of the items I have seen in my Grandmother's home, unfortunately, much was lost when her Mother's home was burn't down in 1942. A book definitely worth buying.

HASH(0x91968828) out of 5 stars Clip Art Review 29 Dec. 2011
By KatReadzAlot - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is a good clip art book for finding old illustrations to be
used in Steampunk projects. There is no cd included.
The images need to be physically cut out or scanned to be used.
I gave this book as a gift to a friend, who is an artist.
He was very happy with the illustrations.

HASH(0x911f4510) out of 5 stars good references- kinda 19 Dec. 2012
By NC Kayak Grrl - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
this is a very comprehensive book of images, but they are all super tiny and you can tell they were shrank down from much larger images and not edited well. the lines are very close together on a lot of the drawings and make the effect a little blurry. i still like having it around for reference.
