Dover Pubulications - http://store.doverpublications.com
If you haven't poked around on this website yet - go do it! I often check out Dover books from the library and I even own a few books. I love this resource for artists.
How I use the images~
- I love taking the old architecture images and pulling out details to inspire stamps & stencils. I like to tweak the image to my liking. I often make both a stencil and a stamp so I can use the images both in the positive & the negative.
- Sometimes practice my drawing skills by copying images
- Use patterns in my rug hooking. Often I am trying to find interesting border patterns for rugs I hook.
Here is an image of the favorite rug I have done so far. I call it a celtic family rug.
