Item details

This pack includes 60 vintage vector graphics featuring gentlemen, lords and ladies sourced from an antique book from the late 1800's. They are all engraved portraits of historical figures, including prominent businessmen, generals, presidents, scientists, actors, artists, writers, religious figures and Queen Victoria herself. 6 women and 54 men are included. Each image is provided to you in both eps (CS2+) and png (5" at tallest point) formats. They have only been altered minimally from the original scans, so they are perfectly authentic antique images. They are all colored black, but you can colorize them yourself in your graphics program.

These portraits are fabulous for packaging and branding design. If you're in need of a gentleman with impressive facial hair, there are plenty of beards, mustaches and chops here!

Each image is named as well, so you know who is who in the mix.
