    Hundreds of Free Art E-Books

    [*Note, May 1, 2010: Sorry, most of the items below dating from later than 1923 have recently been made unavailable for download. On the other hand there are very many older books that have been added since this post was made - just use the search function on the site]

    ...Barcsay, Perard, Moses artistic anatomies; Rockwell, Dore, Kollwitz biographies, ebook editions of old books illustrated by Wyeth, Pyle, Rackham, Crane ..; letters of Michelangelo, Van Gogh, .. ; Vasari's Lives complete in ten volumes; ebooks by Bridgman, Panofsky, Berenson, Kenneth Clark, Whistler, Ruskin ...; Leonardo notebooks illustrated ..; and tons of old illustrated art books.

    Archive.org has been around for years, but there has been a HUGE influx of new art titles in the last few months. To search, make sure you select "texts" in the second box. To download, click "HTTP" and save to disc either the pdf or the (often smaller) DjVu file. Both consist of page images with linked text files, which means that the text is searchable.

    Very hi-res scans can be obtained by downloading the zip archive of jp2 files present in the HTTP folders for many of the books. I use the freeware programme Irfanview to batch convert the jp2 files to jpgs.


    Just some of the juiciest tips of the iceberg (to mix metaphors):

    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

    (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.

    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.

    and then new url's that other people have added to the original post.

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