vintage illustrations

Biodiversity Heritage Library

i thought i’d share a little resource with you today. if you’re into dabbling around with imagery, need inspiration for visual projects or graphic design moodboards or whatever – you might be interested in the Biodiversity Heritage Library. they have hundreds (thousands?) of hi-res images from a consortium of natural history and botanical libraries. you can delve into a world of insects and botanicals and fungi and sea creatures… gorgeous even just to look at.

 

 

 

 

i haven’t even scratched the iceberg of what they have to offer (mixing my idioms there, deal with it). but i couldn’t go posting all the pics ever, so i played a bit with this set of illustrated British fungi – pairing them with street style that have caught my eye recently.
