Dover Digital Design Source #4: Vintage Mortised Cuts
One of Dover Publications all time classic graphics collections and now available with digital images on the CD, this is a standard Victorian collection of quirky, but immensely skilled and detailed images all of which have a "mortise" or area of white space for a typographic message.
All of these will have been in use in the Victorian period with authentic trades advertising their services and wares with these "outer" graphics.
Typical images : typewriters with blanks, elephants with banners, bottles of wine with blank labels, sunbursts, easels, jackdaws and crows, books, clowns,girls, boys, women and Victorian gents, postboys, writers with quills, judges holding paperwork....
Brimming with images of boisterous businessmen, cavorting animals, lovely ladies, laborers, and other whimsical characters, these 670 black-and-white line illustrations reflect the strident optimism of 19th-century American advertising art. Originally used to promote everything from cannonballs to soap, each frame-like clip can be easily customized for new messages.
