beautiful and mostly free

I am so excited about the Wellcome Image Archive, from the Wellcome Library in London.

I discovered this amazing database through Science Books and Films and keep going back in wonder. From the website: "Wellcome Images is one of the world's richest and most unique collections, with themes ranging from medical and social history to contemporary healthcare and biomedical science. ...Whether it's medicine or magic, the sacred or the profane, science or satire - you'll find more than you expect." And the images are downloadable and freely available for noncommercial and private, individual use! Oh, the possibilities! You should really check it out.
