    I'm going to see if I can find the specific link. But I was on Flickr the other day, and there was one girl in particular who had a whole bunch of old typographic books, and illustrations from the 1800's all scanned in.

    Another place to check is 'National Archives' on Flickr. There are some really cool images and documents in there.

    One place I snag vintage scans from is The Graphics Fairy - here's a link to the search page: http://thegraphicsfairy.com/search/

    Lots of Victorian cards, packaging, decorative, and ephemera. Very unusual

    I love all these vintage art styles. Wish I had something to contribute besides my thanks!

    The Library of Congress of course!
