Gorgeous Illustrations from Old Books

The New York Public Library is among the throngs of institutions who are busily digitizing the innards of their antique books.

Now you don’t have to travel to New York to peer into these wonderful tomes!

We’ve just added a link to this website to the others we’ve assembled at Bibliofestoonery (one of the tabs at the top of this blog).

After poking around among the images (in over 3,700 categories!) available at NYPL, click on the “Leave a Comment” link below to let us know of other online treasure troves of beautiful book images you’ve discovered in your travels around the Internet, and we’ll promtply add them to Bibliofestoonery.
