    Do you all just save these to your harddrives? Burn CDs? Have external drives for saving stuff like this?

    Thanks Bob and Justin. Bob, your torrent contains quite a few titles that are in copyright and readily available in print, so I hope you understand if I don't put it with the other links at the head of this page. There are good reasons why our mods would probably jump on me for going down that path here (a path which, I have to confess, does bear some briggsy footprints). Anyone who does want to go down that path need only google an author or subject with such magic phrases "parent directory" or "rapidshare" to turn up a whole world of ebook and video downloads that we won't be discussing in this thread!



    jim b. if you want to listen to any of these pdfs you could try the "Read out loud" function in the View Menu of Acrobat Reader. I just went into Preferences and tried out the British male voice at a low speed and it wasn't TOO bad ... for a robot. Maybe someone knows of another text to speech program that does a better job.

    The audiobook equivalent of Archive.org is Librivox.org. The site is relatively new and rapidly growing, and again, everything is free. Not much there in the way of art books as such yet, but there's a lot of other great stuff, including some real classics of history. I've just listened to what there is so far of Macaulay's History of England (truly awesome!), and I'm making a start on Gibbon's Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire. The readings are all done by volunteers and the quality is quite variable, but MOST are better than a robot. The start of the complete index is here:
    http://librivox.org/newcatalog/searc...&action=Search



    Coleb: 500 GB external hard drive, plus DVD backups of all new stuff as it comes in.


    Finally, here are a couple of new art titles at archive.org that caught my eye. I haven't had time to really look at them yet, so all I can promise about them is that they have intriguing titles. The author of "Figure Drawing for Children" was herself the child of the important nineteenth century teacher and author of "Art Anatomy", William Rimmer.

    Rimmer, Caroline Hunt, 1893. Figure drawing for children : papers of special value to all interested in the development of art among the children.

    Bump

    Ellsworth, Evelyn Peters, 1917. Textiles and costume design
    http://www.archive.org/details/texti...umed00ellsrich

    Traphagen, Ethel, 1918. Costume design and illustration
    http://www.archive.org/details/costu...nill00trapiala

    Well. Lots of things has changed since 1917 in fashion and costume design but these books have some info about history of clothes. Could be useful for some character design especially in fantasy setting. The second one looks like it's more for artists.

    Thanks Briggsy for providing these links to us, and to everyone else who has helped with adding to the content of this thread... I really hoped that someone will post the Bridgman's Book of a Hundred Hands...

    Thanks guys but as I've said before (1) a sticky in the Lounge is a big ask, and (2) it would be almost as good if people were to post their finds a bit more often.

    Anyway I just got my first CA sticky over in Fine Arts, from Elwell no less. Woohoo!
    Head over there and find out why:

    Are the old links still working? I'm trying to download Arthur Guptill's book, but with no luck.

    NOTE: Never mind, the download works now.
