Antique and Vintage Illustration in Collage

This site contains hundreds of antique and vintage book illustrations for you to download. I used the lovely castle illustration (click here to download) to create this digital collage. It was the starting point that I then expanded on to create the imagery I wanted. You can also use it with a cut and paste method.
Below is the castle image to download. It is 5 x 7.5 in tiff format at 300ppi.
