Taken from this French dictionary I found in a used book store’s discard bin. There are tons of amazing images left to use.

  1. Hi Casey, can´t see a place to get in touch, so hope you don’t mind a comment here. I love your stuff and wonder if you would be interested in doing a ‘bloghop´? Artists write a little about the person who nominated them and then answer a few questions about their own work (and then nominate two other artists to carry the blog hop on) – the idea being that artists are introduced to each other’s work. Here’s an example:

  2. I have just discovered your page and could just swoon. All art journal blogs are a pleasure, but I can think of no greater joy than finding an old Larousse reference book with illustrations just waiting to be found and transformed. Great stuff!

    1. I had a lot of fun going through it. The images in the Larousse are incredible. Thank you for stopping by and commenting.
