The New York Public Library (NYPL) has added more than 180,000 pieces to its public digital domain for your free access.
Users can find themselves browsing through graphics ranging from the letters of Thomas Jefferson to photographs by Walker Evans. You will find yourself sieving through botanical illustrations, vintage phone books, and various artworks that you can even print out and frame on your walls.
NYPL has also revamped its interface, making it more user-friendly to the public. Filter through myriad images hassle-free; scholars and researchers can also export works in bulk. Users can easily create wall art by ordering canvas prints and wall mural art consisting of your favorite photographs from the NYPL.
If you are wondering where to start, NYPL has created the visual browsing tool, which allows you to peruse through the collection that is organized by year, location, or color. For starters, check out categories such as the ‘Poster Collection’, ‘Book Art and Illustrations’, ‘Fashion Illustrations’ and ‘Collections for Designers’.
Visit the NYPL Digital Collections to find yourself a treasure.
