Give-away: Patent Drawing Art Prints

Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterGoogle+Email to someone

I love creating pieces for my home. I’ve recently been working on a set of patent drawing collages for my office. As a photographer and digital artist, patent drawings of viewers, cameras and image-making devices are particularly intriguing. The set of images features:

1. Stereoscopic Viewer created by E. W. Sparling
2. Kodak Eastman camera created by George Eastman
3. Slide Viewer created by Thomas Clark

I am sharing these three images with everyone out there in the InternetLands FOR FREE! You can download the image files below and print them out for your home or office.

DIY Printing & Framing

1. Download the high-resolution images: Stereoscopic Viewer Print –  Eastman Camera Print –  Slide Viewer Print
*Your browser will open a new window for each high-resolution jpeg file. Right click on the file and save the file to your computer.

2. Print the 8 in. x 10 in. images.
*Tips on printing: Ideally you should print the images on an inkjet printer. However, a good color laserjet printer should also yield a beautiful result. Make sure to print at the highest print setting available. The files have been set up for printing on 8.5 in. x 11 in. paper. Make sure that the images are printed 100% scale.
*Choosing paper: You want to print on a good quality photographic paper. An affordable option is the Brilliant brand of papers available at Calumet Photographic. I prefer their high quality matte for these images.

3. Frame the images! You can find used 8 in. x 10 in. frames at a flea market or purchase new, modern frames at places like A.C. Moore or Ikea. I used matching white frames from A.C. Moore. Hang your images in a row or salon-style (at random heights near each other).
