Clip Art Project

One of my obsessions is old magazines. They are such a great way to take a look at what life was like at a specific period in time. I think the ads tell as much as anything else.

I have several issues of Demorest's Family Magazine from the late 1800s. They are in pretty rough shape - mostly loose pages and many of those stained beyond recognition. I'm in the process of scanning the ads for digital collage sheets, but I thought I'd also separate some of the images as well. While the ads will keep the look of the original - yellowed background and all - I've decided to see if I can clean up the images. The images above show my first attempt - I think it turned out pretty well!
