It is a bit trickier to do a complete search now that the main site and the gallery site are separated.  Still, the best place to start is with the Browse By Category section at the top of the middle column on the main page.  This will narrow down the choices.  The search box will search the entire site, but will not include the gallery.oldbookart site.  For that you will need to do a new search on the gallery site.

Sorry that it is more complicated than it should be.  This is one of the main drawbacks of the new site design.

You can also try a Google Search which should search both the Main site and the Gallery site.  Google does a pretty good job of staying current with the content here, so using the search box below may bring the most comprehensive results, although it may miss some newer content.

The Mission of Old Book Art

To provide free illustrations, pictures, drawings, maps and other images, most of which we have scanned from antiquarian, public-domain books and other old documents. We have over 4,700 images in our gallery with more added regularly. Any image on this site or the gallery site may be downloaded for free. We will also screen and provide links to other high quality resources, including sites which offer larger versions of our images for a fee. Some of the links on this site are to sites that charge for images, and for some of those sites we may receive compensation as a referral fee, or a royalty if it is a larger image from this site for sale.
