Old Times Collections Stock Images
illustrations and engravings of the past with property release
The images Old Times Collections on sale on this Website are hi-res and digitally enhanced scans of antique illustrations carefully selected out of a huge collection of books of ‘800 and early ‘900, all of them our property.
All the images undergo an exclusive process of restoration:
– refreshing the ink tracks of the engravings and the colors of the painted illustrations
– eliminating dust, defects, scratches, pen and pencils sign and the yellowing of time,
– researching and describing below each single illustration the significance, its historical time and its most relevant details (e.g. a chemical reaction, a craftwork of art…)
– enlarging the image to a size suited for printing without sacrificing in the least its details and quality.
After the refurbishing process some images are further enhanced with decorative titles (e.g. the taxonomical designation of a plant…) or processed into a collage according to old times fashion.
Any possible effort is made to respect the original character of the images throughout the restoration and enhancement process – within the limits (often challenging) set by the poor conditions of the original; nevertheless some imperfections due to the age and the conditions could be present
