New VRC Collection

Monday, February 22nd, 2010

If you’re a WSU student, faculty, or staff, you now have access to Historic Illustrations of Art and Architecture in Luna, a collection of 350 scans taken from various public domain works. These historic illustrations were originally published during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries and cover a wide range of objects from Europe and the Middle East. Many originally appeared in publications that predated the widespread use of photography for art documentation. These engravings, line drawings, and plans for many well-known historic structures reflect both the technological and aesthetic standards of their time.
