Public Domain Images from Karen's Whimsy




WELCOME! :: You have arrived at the main page for my public domain images. On the following pages you will find hundreds of beautiful images gleaned from my collection of old books, magazines, and postcards. They are all from material printed prior to 1923 and are in the public domain.

FREE IMAGES :: You don't have to buy any of the images here; they are all free. However, a few are available at a higher resolution for purchase. If you don't see a "Buy" link, then just grab the image and don't worry about paying for it.

TERMS OF USE :: I hope you will enjoy using these pictures. You are free to use them in your artistic endeavors, either privately or commercially. My only request is that you not sell or give away the images themselves either individually or as a collection. I spend a lot of time searching for and buying the source material, scanning, fixing, and editing the images, and then putting them on the web. By respecting these simple terms of use, you allow me to continue providing wonderful artwork that would remain hidden between the covers of these books, decayed from age, or tossed into landfills. Read the details of my Terms of Use for more information.

LINK BACK :: Although not required, if you do find these images helpful, a link or footnote back to this page would be appreciated:

SITE MAP :: Listed below are the most recent public domain images. If you need a complete, detailed list of all the images available on this site, please go to my Site Map for Public Domain Images. Otherwise, use the menu on the left to find what you're looking for or the search box below. Also, if you're looking for something in particular that you are unable to find, send me an email, and I'll see what I can do.
