These vintage travel posters advertising popular Brighton railway routes represent just a small selection of vintage artwork curated for the arts and crafts community on vintagerio.com.
Set up seven years ago by vintage art enthusiast known as Lee, the site acts as a library of copyright-free images that users can download for a small membership fee, to use in articles, craft and scrap-booking.
“I have always been interested in vintage art and started to collect copyrights-expired public domain images about 10 years ago for my part-time design work” Lee explains.
Since then he has created something on an online museum displaying vintage travel posters, advertising images, theatre posters, war propaganda, greetings cards, perfume labels and more.
“I realised that most images available online are low res and in small files and subsequently spent a lot of my free time researching and legally downloading high res quality public domain images through .edu and .gov sites, as well as connecting with other scrap-bookers and crafters who have private collections for exchange.”
From 15USD for a 20-image trial to 59USD for a six-months unlimited download package, users can also download artwork to resell as physical prints or craft.Read the full story »
