Hortus Romanus Lychnis sylvestris quae Saponaria vulgo Saponara Le Lichnis sauvage
The works of classical illustration for science and literature, political commentary, and children’s works are are seriously interesting, though rather challenging for a vector conversion project. Converting watercolor, line-work, wood-block print, and other styles to vector leads to some fairly serious hair tearing on occasion. Maintaining as much of the feel of the original pieces as possible while ensuring that the conversions are print-ready sometimes takes a lot longer than expected. Reading the books these images are from, however, is always a joy. If you need a reading list of utter loveliness, these illustrators and authors are well worth your time, and as each book is no longer under copyright you can often find versions of these books online quite easily.

The Vac hopes you enjoy the artwork, and suggests that searching for “Wetdryvac" and the artist’s name here on Redbubble without quotes will find the other pieces in the set if you’ve landed here via a particular piece of artwork.
