Vintage Photoshop Brushes

Vintage Brushes

I've been spending a lot of time at Archive.org looking at some of the wonderful woodcuts, lineart and other fantastic art from long ago.  What's really great is that a majority of the art is Public Domain (especially if it's before 1923 and if the artist/author died before then).  There are certain cases where a family or institution has renewed the copyright and the artwork is not public domain. But usually archive.org will let you know in the files description.  The artwork I've gathered is OUT OF COPYRIGHT.  Which means you can use it where ever you want to. No attribution is required.

In any case I've put together a collection of Printer marks and flourishes in a Photoshop brush set.  The only thing I ask is that you tweet, or G+ or you put a link on Facebook to download the Brushes.

I did go through some hassle in downloading the full resolution file, cleaning the image up and making it useable.  You can if you want to just go to archive.org and find the elements yourself, download the file, pull it through Photoshop and create a brush.. But I promise you - you will get stuck for HOURS.


In any case, here's the thumbnail sheet of the vintage element brushes:
