The Trade Card Place recently created a permanent, on-line Reference Library of articles about various aspects of trade cards and trade card collecting, dating from the late 18th and early 19th centuries. Illustrator Amy Crehore notes on her blog that this is "... an incredible resource for artists or anyone who loves Victorian illustration, humorous advertising and the color lithography of the late 1800's." She's so right––it's fascinating stuff. Have a look here. Check out Amy's blog here. Via boingboing.
