It’s trite but true: a picture is worth a thousand words. In our emoticon-spouting, animated GIF meme-ing, Facebook-loving times, we communicate, more and more, through images. The Freebie Image Gallery features high-resolution images available through the Devil’s Artisan, our very own Journal of the Printing Arts. DA’s Dingbats Section offers an ever-expanding selection of free, high-resolution, downloadable dingbats, ornaments and fanciful initials for your printed and online projects.

Some of my favourite summer memories have to do with boats. I’m not really a “boat person” per se—I don’t own a boat or ever want to—but I love the feeling of bobbing along on the water. I’m fascinated by the trappings of maritime life and I have an appreciation for the nautical aesthetic. Today’s freebie image gallery celebrates these “nautical notions” with pictures of boats, ships, water and other maritime imagery. They’d make great artwork for your home, or lovely additions to your design projects. Click on the images below or browse the DA website for print-quality versions.
For more dingbats, ornaments and fancy initials for your projects, visit the Devil’s Artisan website. Be sure to show us all the pretty things you’ve made!
All the best,
