    Link Public domain castles

    The British Library has a massive collection of public domain images collected on Flickr. Here specifically are 95 illustrations (and a couple floor plans) or castles:

    I love stuff like this. I've been combing through Google and grabbing floor plans for big, famous estates...then turning around and using them as castles/dungeons in my D&D campaign. This originally started as a floor plan for an old mansion or estate that I came across (recreated in Adobe Illustrator) :

    Good find, some of those illustrations are fantastic. There's a genre of painting and drawing (probably etching too) that I really like, showing the lonely ruins of a castle from a distance. I remember seeing one of Drachenfels some time in the past. So cliché, but still...

    xpian, that's great, it makes me think of Sans Souci in Berlin.

    cheers,
    Meshon
