This public domain fancy letter O drawing is ready for printing or otherwise incorporating into your next project. The scan left a light side and a darker side but I like the effect – it almost makes this vintage book illustration look like a rubber-stamped image.
This letter O drawing looks a bit like a leather book cover. The O is in the center of the image and the curli-ques that surround it complete the image of an old book with a hand-tooled cover.
Thomas E. Hill must have spent years writing his book Hill’s Album of Biography and Art. It was published in 1882 with hundreds of wonderful illustrations and what appear to be stock print foundry images. Over 200 of them can be found here on Reusable Art.
This image is copyright free and in the public domain anywhere that extends copyrights 70 years after death or at least 120 years after publication when the original illustrator is unknown.
