Available on Flickr, British Library has released almost one million images that can now be downloaded for free. Most of these images have been catalogued by volunteers for the library, and have assembled them into generic categories, such as architecture, women of the world, comic art, cycling, ships, and even costumes and dresses. They have as many categories as you'd like to browse with.
With every image, there's a credit and the page of the book it has been scanned from. An illustrator and art historian's dream come true? We think so too.
