    This is awesome! I already have lots of art ebooks but now I wonder how I'm going to read all this stuff .

    Edit: I was planning some time ago to buy a book with Leonardo da Vinci notes but it's already here. How nice

    You're welcome everyone - really enjoying all your reactions. However all thanks should go to the crew at archive.org and their contributors, especially the Canadian Libraries, who do a beautiful job.

    Thanks Asoir, if you're into classic pen and ink work try these

    Sullivan, Edmund J. 1921. The Art Of Illustration.

    Sullivan, Edmund J. 1922. Line - an art study
    http://www.archive.org/details/lineartstudy00sulluoft
    (warning: If you read the entire book you'll need to overlook the occasional use of words that would be considered racist today)

    Please report back more of your finds here!

    To see the world in a grain of sand, and a heaven in a wildflower, hold infinity in the palm of your hand, and eternity in an hour.

    That way we get the most out of this site before people start to get anal about it?

    Not gonna' happen. This is all public domain stuff. And the Loomis books haven't really gone anywhere, you just have to look a little harder...

    Well, you never know, as least as far as stuff exclusively hanging in the archive goes. People have tried to shut down archive.org before (mainly because of the wayback machine).

    And if the recent (thankfully thwarted!) attempt to sell out the contents of Smithsonian archive to Showtime (where it would be locked behind a paywall forever) is any indicator, absolutely nothing is sacred anymore...

    That said, the administrative direction of archive.org is ideologically strong enough to resist internal strife, as opposed to the Smithsonian institution, which had a pretty corrupt director.
