The Start of a Story

If your imagination just needs the slightest glimpse of something unusual to create a story why not explore the public domain review ?

“The Public Domain Review is dedicated to the exploration of curious and compelling works from the history of art, literature, and ideas – focusing on works now fallen into the public domain, the vast commons of out-of-copyright material that everyone is free to enjoy, share, and build upon without restrictions.”

A snapshot of their latest posts on Instagram illustrates the range of their resources. Collated as they come out of copyright, and hopefully protected from the grasp of profit-driven image houses, they are simply wonderful.

You can explore by category if you have a topic of interest

or just trust serendipity if you follow their social media or sign up to their newsletter.

I am happy to support PDR, as I support Wikipedia, to assure the preservation of these resources for public good. I can also see some likely future present purchases from their shop ... which may somehow never be gifted after all.

If you want to use any of their collection please check out

So, apologies if you have work to be done - as once you start exploring - if your curiosity is as insatiable as mine -you may struggle to escape back into the real world.
