I stumbled upon this French site that has many old engravings, often in large format and in color. I really like botanical illustrations. Most botanical illustrations are all over Pinterest, but this old image is new to me.

I just returned from the annual Renegade Craft in Brooklyn. It was pretty great. The fair showcases handmade work and wares of independent craftspeople, artists, and designers from all over the country. Each year the quality of the crafts and goods gets better and better. Here are a few photos I quickly snapped earlier today.
