I love the look of vintage ads and drawings of plants and animals, and wanted some to hang above my bed. I found these pretty bird images in the New York Public Library's Digital Gallery. You can purchase prints that I'm sure are much higher quality, but these work just fine for me. I put them in two $10 Ribba frames from IKEA... fast and simple art for $20!
Check out the gallery-- there are so many great images. You can search or browse by name, subject, division or collection. I recommend the Ornament and Pattern: Pre-Victorian to Art Deco collection... beautiful.
