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.

For over a century, innovation has been the preoccupation of inventors, entrepreneurs and idle armchair masterminds all looking to “build a better mousetrap” as it were. We here at PQL can appreciate the ways that twentieth-century technologies can produce what looks like nineteenth-century letterpress products, but we also can’t help but enjoy the attractions, entertainments and conveniences of modern cellphones, streaming services and computers. So in honour of the spirit of innovation, here are some images on the theme–many with a rather fitting Victorian feel–that you can use in your digital and print design projects.
Hopefully this has been an illuminating group of (free!) images to use in your design projects. Be sure to browse our entire collection over at the Dingbats Section of the Devil’s Artisan. And as always, let us know what kind of creative projects you’re working on with these beauties.
