Pounding across the windswept plains of dusty Troy, chariots careen around a savage battlefield as spears fly and swords flash. Gods rage in the sky and on the ground as heroes clash and weapons crash. Amidst it all flows the stuff of greatness. Though recorded by a blind poet, the word-picture of the battles at Troy is enough to drive the image home. Modern times call for modern measures, however, and in the digital world, free clipart has replaced blind poets hands down. The world has its needs for great and powerful words, it is true, but the Internet and amateur and professional worlds of print have come crawling through the dust on their knees, begging a new medium.
Call it nostalgia, or homage, or Victorian-inspired shabby chic. Crafters and scrappers are increasingly using vintage images, photos and clipart in their designs. Antique pictures can add color, sentiment, humor, and a reminder that the important things in life are timeless. If you want to use vintage illustrations or photos in your projects, you should be aware of three things: copyright considerations, types of materials, and possible sources.
