Public Domain Images | Aikermann’s Repository of Arts The Complete Collection 1,499 Illustrations

Ok folks, I’m super excited to finally announce that we have extracted all of the public domain images and illustrations from the  Aikermann’s Repository of Arts. We manually sorted 20,000 pages of the 20 year publication, published from 1809 to 1829 and extracted 1,499 illustrations. This is probably one of my favorite collections that we have ever discovered. There are 3 ways that you can obtain the  Aikermann’s Repository of Arts. 

*Note: If you are already a premium member, you can begin browsing and downloading the images right now. We have broken the collection into separate galleries containing 200 public domain images each. We did this to allow you to browse the images more easily. Since the individual images are so large, having too many images in a single gallery tends to make the images load extremely slow.

Three Options for Downloading the Public Domain Images

1) You can download the entire collection of 20,000 pages in PDF format. This is going to be lower resolution but great if you want to actually read the text and get a better historical perspective of what was going on in England at the turn of the 19th century.  This is about 1.5 GB in file size.
