I have a amassed a vast collection of Victorian books packed to the gunnels with beautiful and often fascinating illustrations. Their detailing can be exquisite, and think it’s such a shame that these beautiful images are being lost to time, consequently I’m trying to scan and save as many as I can.
Over the last few years I have been contacted by people galore asking where I got my illustrations from and did I have any of grief stricken women/happy children/beach donkeys/steam trains/Weymouth/Portland and any manner of subjects.
I have now decided that I’ll start putting them into my portfolio on IStock/Getty, that way they are easily searchable for interested parties rather than me randomly leafing my way through my library looking for specific things.
But should there be something specific you’re looking for, send me a message and I’ll try my best to find it.
