Book-themed woodcuts?
December 8, 2010 3:06 PM   Subscribe

Looking for woodcuts or vector art of books and book-related themes.

I'm building a bookcase; the top of it is aluminum and I hope to engrave it with some kind image related to books or libraries. Therefore I'm looking for, ideally, vector art of book-related images, although high-resolution raster images would be ok too. There are two 24" x 10" panels to engrave, so I'm hoping to find images with lots of detail. I've seen this and this, but neither has quite what I'm looking for.

The final image will probably be engraved with a CNC mill, although may be laser-etched, if that's important.

Try searching various archives for ex-libris collections. The Pratt Libraries Ex Libris Collection might be a nice introduction to the phenomenon.
