Love and Romance: a Pictorial Archive From 19TH-century Sources (Dover Pictorial Archives)by Carol Belanger Grafton
Synopses & Reviews
Among the most popular and often-used graphic images are those depicting romantic themes. Now commercial artists (as well as anyone in need of interesting visual devices) can draw on this superb archive of 705 royalty-free illustrations of love and romance.
Selected from authentic 19th-century sources, hundreds of immediately usable motifs include demure damsels and suave suitors; couples embracing, holding hands, courting, flirting, kissing, dancing, exchanging amorous glances, and engaging in a host of other activities associated with the pursuit and attainment of romantic bliss. There is also an entire section devoted to weddings, as well as dozens of images and symbols associated with romance: cupids, lockets, rings, valentines, and much more.
Finely drawn and engraved, these often humorous, sometimes tender, but always nostalgic illustrations reproduce extremely well, making them ideal for use in books, magazines, catalogs, advertisements, and a host of other graphic projects.
Over 700 royalty-free illustrations from authentic 19th-century sources include demure damsels and suave suitors; couples embracing, holding hands, dancing, and courting; plus images of cupids, hearts, rings, and much more.
