    Was doing a themed birthday party event on "All Things Literary", and used the illustrations in this book for artwork and gift tags (scanned pages so I didn't need to cut up the book). A ton of great art designs on literary themes of writing, reading and famous authors. Great source, and at a great price!

    This book is a shear delight. Included are images that I coveted on rubber stamps that were too expensive, and now I have them all in this book. I have been looking for male images seated at a writing desk, for a scrap booking page for my son. Most of the seated men are older and quite developed in their belly region, but the portraits of Shakespeare and other writers of note, will work just find. This book overflows with great female images. Love the book and I would buy it again!

    didn't expect to see so many anatomy images as well as murder images which I don't need and wish I didn't purchase. I actually clipped these pages out as they were not encouraging to my creative spirit.

    I received this book directly from Amazon. It was used and described as "good"; I purchased it and was VERY disappointed to find upon receipt that many, many clips had already been removed from this "good" used book.

    Need an illustration of a medieval woman perusing a book? A famous person of literature like William Shakespeare? An imp sitting on a stack of tomes? Or something more mundane, like an open-faced book or a bottle of ink? This book contains that and more. The quality and quantity of these charming black-and-white illustrations is as impressive as the title is self-explanatory.
