I wasn’t sure where else to direct feedback, so I just wanted to send some gratitude to the creators of this site. What an enormous undertaking this must have been.
I’m an artist and I was interested in using Victorian-era dog/animal illustrations in my work, so I was poring through blurry photos on eBay listings. Stumbled upon your website without really knowing much about the history of the company, and now I feel totally emotionally attached! I’ve been able to source a lot of dog art for my own use, but I’ve also just really enjoyed browsing everything else.
This collection is not only well-catalogued, but the image quality is also superb. You have made my life so, so much easier and I wish the American Antiquarian Society would take some notes from you all, haha.
Thank you again for what I’m sure was a huge labor of love.
