New York Public Library – Public Domain Image Collection image/svg+xml

Did you know that more than 180,000 of the items in our Digital Collections are in the public domain?

That means everyone has the freedom to enjoy and reuse these materials in almost limitless ways. The Library now makes it possible to download such items in the highest resolution available directly from the Digital Collections website.

The visualisation tool is a nice touch and there is plenty of good material here, including photographs, postcards, illustrations, prints, maps, menus etc. I’d imagine these images will get remixed a lot. See below for a sample image.
