While viewing public domain images for references, I found myself in awe of the beauty, precision, and uniqueness of these spectacular images. It seemed to be a shame that many of these timeless images would go unseen when they had so much to offer students and teachers. While there were many fantastic pictures available, most needed a variety of edits and touch-up work to be suited for reuse. I decided it would be worthwhile to restore and share my "Found Treasures" in a format that would be better suited for projects on TPT.
Why choose "Found Treasures"?
Permissions/Usage-Worry free permissions! ALL public domain images were filtered through libraries for "no known copyright restrictions" only. In addition, the bundle includes email transcripts from both sources stating permission to obtain and use commercially! Images were only downloaded from these sources in which commercial usage was guaranteed...and even encouraged!
Excellent Selection-Hours of searching. These beautiful and timeless selections were not chosen at random or without thought. Designer viewpoint consideration was involved in each selection. Found Treasures only includes images that were thought to be good choices for TPT products, covers, and classrooms. Appropriateness, aesthetics, subject matter, visuals, and potential for use were considered on each piece. Save yourself the hours of searching through public domain images and questioning their restrictions and determining the best images. The best images for TPT use were determined selected and saved to this bundle!
Quality! Last but not least, every single one of these images has been modified in some way to make it a better choice for TPT educators and sellers. Images have been edited for contrast, color, cleanliness, boldness, and lighting (for the best visual on TPT products!) In some cases, outlines have been added, or images were changed to B/W, grayscale, or color depending on which best suited the image. Some images were taken from larger pages, cropped neatly, and edited for clip-art as singular pieces. Others have been stylized, resized, recolored, or reformatted. Each timeless image was designed to be an iconic and eye-catching choice for your classroom materials and products.
Special thanks to the the wonderful people behind the collections from the New York Library and British Library for providing access to some of these timeless and spectacular images.
