Ferrante Imperato, Dell’Historia Naturale (1599).
This is the earliest known illustration of a natural history cabinet.
The vintage ephemera and antique clipart images from Pegasus Paper Co. are a combination of my own original designs and images from the public domain that have been edited and digitally enhanced. It is my goal to give you the largest and highest quality images possible. Many of these printable illustrations come from my own library and antique store treasure hunts in Upstate NY. Some are rescued from the public domain in poor shape, cleaned, collaged and mended. They are then released into the wild in higher resolution, to live productive lives in the hands of crafters, artists, and makers like you.
