Beautiful imagery from old books—there goes my productivity for today

This is gorgeous—beautiful artworks from old books. This sort of thing is a menace to my ability to focus—almost as bad as DeviantART.

Karnac, November 29th, 1838

Engraving of the ruins at Karnac, made November 29th, 1838 by Belgian engraver Louis Haghe.

I had no idea the Egyptian ruins still had such well-preserved polychrome decoration as late as the 19th century. At least, not out-of-doors. Amazing.
