A blog I love to check every week or so is BibliOdyssey – ‘Books~~Illustrations~~Science~~History~~Visual Materia Obscura~~Eclectic Bookart.’

This blog showcases images drawn from historical collections and publications that are now available on the web. As well as being visual bliss, it’s also a great resource for teachers who may wish to use historical images in their teaching – each posting explains the collection that the images are from, provides some basic details, and links to the web page of the collection.

Recent postings include images from the 14th century Das Buch der Natur (The Book of Nature); 18th and 19th century images of Printers’ Devices; and images from Racinet’s 19th century Complete Costume History.
