You may have noticed in your delighted perusing of our delightful blog that many (or most) of our images are sourced from Wikicommons.
So a short explanation: Wikicommons is a database of images, sounds, and videos (with the emphasis on the images) that fall under the public domain. For students of literature, it’s useful not just to find images of writers, but also to find illustrations and artwork depicting or inspired by the texts they study. As we run out of time and funding on the Great Writers Inspire Project, we’ll be able to upload fewer of the images we’d like to get on our site, so it’s worth doing a little exploring yourself. Enjoy!
