In the summer of 2017, I started collecting these books of public domain cuts from around the late 1800's – early 1900's, and have been using them to great effect. Check out the Creative Mass postcards in my design portfolio, or see a couple of the examples below. I have always been fascinated by wood and metal cuts for printing. And before finding these images, I already had a deep love for photomontage. Whether it be typography, individual items, or scenes from books or news papers; I really love seeing how folks find and then use things for their own purposes.
