"mirrors and copulation are abominable, since they both multiply the numbers of men."






A couple of close-ups of the collage I'm working on at the moment, using open source material from the British Library: https://www.flickr.com/photos/britishlibrary

British Library: We have released over a million images onto Flickr Commons for anyone to use, remix and repurpose. These images were taken from the pages of 17th, 18th and 19th century books digitised by Microsoft who then generously gifted the scanned images to us, allowing us to release them back into the Public Domain. The images themselves cover a startling mix of subjects: There are maps, geological diagrams, beautiful illustrations, comical satire, illuminated and decorative letters, colourful illustrations, landscapes, wall-paintings and so much more that even we are not aware of.
