Copy? Right!

Lookie what I found while I was clicking through my link list!  Apartment Therapy discovered an electronic swatch book of copyright free  fabric patterns circa 1830 - 1920 at Sydney's Powerhouse Museum.  If you're computer and photoshop friendly, you can download these vintage designs, turn 'em into black and white art, clean 'em up a bit and make timeless photopolymer plates and etched copper texture sheets.  All of the swatches are in the public domain "down under", but you may need to do a little more investigation to see if you can use them elsewhere in the world.
