British Library posts 1m copyright-free images online

Boing Boing: The British Library has posted over a million copyright free images taken from books prior to 1900 on Flickr. That means if you need decorations of virtually any type for a website or book, you’ll find more than you can imagine among these visual riches.

I've been following that Flickr account for a few months. They post most every image in the books, even the decorative scrolls.

Meanwhile the NYPL has done something similar, buy which goes beyond images from books:
