Clipart - Mysteries and Omens

ZIP File

Ten files from my collection of artwork from the Golden Age of Illustration. The images are past US and UK copyright limits and may be available elsewhere.

However, these high resolution versions have been digitally cleaned and often enhanced. As a result, they offer a very flexible print quality resource, which can be used to illustrate handouts, to decorate ebooks or for coloring in.

Prints may vary according to devices and color profiles, but I have had excellent results on a variety of printers and used many of the files when publishing games or books.

The images are provided in print ready cymk color as .TIF files at the best combination of size and resolution I was able to capture.

Web and on-line digital publications including software, gaming and computer GUI design are acceptable uses.

As Malcolm asked, over 4 years ago, it would be much better to have a Quick or Full-Size Preview, or even just images included in the product description of what we are actually getting if we were to purchase the product. One out of ten images is definitely not enough to justify spending $12 on...

Please include small thumbnails of these graphics so we can assess their usefulness. Even if they're only as big as the illi shown above, that would be fine.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
