Look at these gorgeous original chromolithographs. These are wood engraved plates from a book from 1869. I snap this kind of stuff up when I see it at flea markets and auctions. the colours are amazing, aren't they? - 140 years old - incredible! I get so inspired by beautiful vintage imagery like this.
