Pretty Pictures

I’m on the road today and short on computer access, but I still want to share something I learned at work last week:

The British Library has a Flickr account with tens of thousands of pictures scanned from old books and papers in their collection. There’s an album devoted to children’s book illustrations, and another one full of old cover designs, and plenty more besides. IT’S SO COOL. If you’re an illustration or design nerd like me, the whole thing is a joy. Happy scrolling!
