They’re curated from public domain archives, public libraries, and my own personal collection of antique books, postcards, trading cards, and other vintage materials. Most images are slightly edited (cropped and cleaned up) before they’re uploaded.
  • You may use the images on this site in your projects without permission. But please share FreeVintageillustrations.com where you can. Spreading the word allows this site to grow, so I can curate more free images from the public domain. A thumbs up on Facebook and Instagram really helps too!
