4.0 out of 5 stars Victorian Goods and Merchandise
A fascinating book, with wonderful illustrations, it could have been made much more interesting and enjoyable with some description of the items and their use. If this had cost a little more, it would have been worth it. Some of the items I have seen in my Grandmother's home, unfortunately, much was lost when her Mother's home was burn't down in 1942. A book definitely...

3.0 out of 5 stars Clip Art Review
This is a good clip art book for finding old illustrations to be
used in Steampunk projects. There is no cd included.
The images need to be physically cut out or scanned to be used.
I gave this book as a gift to a friend, who is an artist.
He was very happy with the illustrations.

I purchased the book for Victorian inspiration for use in ATCs, collage work, and steampunk art material. Wonderful ideas and features for use with mermaids, sirens, and other collage projects.

3.0 out of 5 stars good references- kinda, December 19, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Victorian Goods and Merchandise: 2,300 Illustrations (Dover Pictorial Archive) (Paperback)
this is a very comprehensive book of images, but they are all super tiny and you can tell they were shrank down from much larger images and not edited well. the lines are very close together on a lot of the drawings and make the effect a little blurry. i still like having it around for reference.

1.0 out of 5 stars Nice but not what I needed, March 7, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I was hoping this would be printable so that I could incorporate some of the pictures into my needle point. I couldn't figure out how to do that at all. Interesting but of no use to me.

I like this book for reference as an artist. I really enjoy old Victorian items because they have an element of creepy. It's good to have a quick reference at your fingertips when illustrating.
