Smithsonian puts nearly 3 million images into Public Domain

And they’re 100% creative commons free to use. Just for fun search “poster” or “illustration”.

Thanks for sharing.

Wow, very cool! There are so many assets!

Still need to be cautious of existing trademarks / usages, as this only covers copyright.

Good catch @silence04

Thanks for sharing, I did look up “poster” and all these vintage posters showed up. Something I’m always interested in seeing. A few posters I look at were from 1898, 1920s and 1940s pretty awesome to see.

There are a lot of third party issues there. Just sayin’…
Privacy or Publicity rights covers “MODEL and PROPERTY RELEASE.” You need to check dates carefully and even then you may not be safe.
