The British Library has a collection of over a million copyright free images for use in Word documents and PowerPoint presentations.

They are on Flickr and a good place to start is the albums.

A few that caught our eye are:

Women of the World

Illustrated Letters and Typography – perhaps for unique Drop Caps?

Decorative Papers – for backgrounds on documents or slides

Fauna and Flora

Technology and Industry

How to Download

Once you’ve found an image, look in the bottom right corner for the download button.  Choose an image size, though we always choose ‘Original’ and do our own adjustments in Office.

The downloaded image is named with the flickr ID number, we change that to something more helpful to us humans.

When visiting London, don’t miss the British Library.  A lovely building and the museum is a joy to any lover of the printed word.  Among the many exhibits is the precursor of OneNote. Free entry, you don’t need a renowned ‘ticket’ to see the public areas and museum.  Right next to Kings Cross/St Pancras Station, tube and buses run right past the front door.
