Library Images

Did you know that the New York Public Library has an extensive digital collection of images that you can print out for free?  Just ask Patience and Fortitude, the two lions that flank the entrance and just celebrated their 100th birthday.  School starts soon...wouldn't it be cute to cover books in an old map or zoology print?       
{New York, from Brooklyn Heights 1837}
{Papilio philoxenus, Inde, 1928}
{I love the collection of dustjackets}

Ooo, I'd like to cover a book or two in the William Morris piece. :)
