Fanciful and fun 18th century vintage illustrations

It's been a while since I showed off any new additions to my growing royalty free stock art catalog. This month I published some items from a book about the Age of Enlightenment. What a wonderful name for an age! I'm sure enlightenment was really needed considering so-called medical professionals thought bleeding was a good course of action.

On that note I'll introduce what I call the medical quack:

This cringe-inducing vintage image is available as a high 300 dpi resolution jpeg for creative projects print or digital. I can imagine people who make those funny pictures that are endlessly posted on Facebook having fun making a headline for this one. Visit the catalog page for the 18th century doctor illustration.

Switching to a much lovelier subject, I now present the Love Letter.

This royalty free vintage stock image is full of warmth and excitement. The young lady with her little dog and flowers as she savors the words of her suitor is available as a high resolution jpeg measuring 1853 x 2304 pixels (6.1 x 7.7 inches). For romantic creative projects enter her world and view the 18th century vintage illustration of a young woman.

Love letters hopefully lead to fun double dates with your best girlfriend and some charming gentlemen to fawn over you.

Hopefully this is the vintage dinner party image you've been looking for.

To conclude I'll show off the 18th century Italian opera singer. He looks magnificent. Even if I'm the only person in the world who thinks this vintage illustration is cool, I'm still glad I published him.
