Freebie Image Gallery: A Family Feast

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 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.

Today, in honour of Thanksgiving for our American friends (and to get the rest of us primed for the Holiday Eating Season), we’re featuring a gallery of beautiful vintage images that evoke the abundance—and excesses—of the holiday family feast.


I never understood the concept of stuffing a horn with produce and calling it home decor, but to each his or her own, I guess.


Now this is a Thanksgiving emblem I DO understand.

I call shenanigans on this one. First of all, I am way more enthusiastic about food. Second of all, my plate during a holiday feast looks more like a mountain, or a precariously balanced tower.

glorious roast

Admit it. You, too, would be ecstatic to bring a roast like this out to the family.


Now THIS is what I call a party.

If you don’t look like this after a big holiday meal, you’re not doing it right.


PortraitHow’s that for a sample of the quirky and cool vintage images available over at the Dingbats Section of the Devil’s Artisan website? There are plenty more where these came from: hundreds of high-resolution typographic ornaments, insects and birds, fish and mammals, and oddities of various sorts await! Visit today to browse this gallery of curiosities.
