Amazing Magazine Illustrations: Wonderful copyright-free illustrations for artists and designers. Old Book Illustrations. (Paperback)
This book gathers 100 black and white illustrations obtained from a periodical publication unknown for being a local magazine published in the 19th century.
The illustrations were processed with an Ink Sketch effect to highlight the lines of the drawings and remove color saturation. The objective is not to achieve high-quality images, but it responds to an aesthetic intention. Expressiveness prevails over correction. This work offers a transformation of the original illustrations, a reinterpretation where the drawings transcend the context for which they were created.
The book comes with a download link. It provides access to both the images and magazines from which the illustrations were obtained. This allows artists and designers to draw on the original sources to create their own interpretations and bring "new life" to these timeless illustrations.
