Victorian era scrapbooksPerhaps you are a digital designer on a quest for digital scrapbooking freebies and downloads? Scrapbooking has a fascinating pedigree; the majority of free vintage clip art images on this website were derived from antique Victorian era scrapbooks that have survived the ravages of time.

Some of the more interesting scrapbooks in my collection are not those which are crammed with Victorian art prints, scraps and postcards; rather, I enjoy the more personal scrapbooks; those made from altered ledgers and books containing favorite poems, recipes, snippets of useful information, spiced up with the occasional scrap image or cherished photograph.

We now have so many choices, and digital scrapbooking software has for some replaced the traditional supplies of printed scraps and paste glue. I am not as old-fashioned as I appear, I think there is comfort in knowing a tradition born of necessity and beauty continues in some form.
