well there goes my day
So, I suppose technically one is supposed to buy the rights to the scans. I looked up the crossbow (p. 149) and it links to another site - 120 euros/133 USD for private use/1 print allowed!
It seems to me that the work is in the public domain.
These particular scans of the work are not
… or are they?
some fun light reading!
(TLDR; the court’s opinion indicates, “substantially exact reproductions”
of public domain works of art are also public domain)
So I looked at some of these, and I realize that I can’t really comprehend genius. I can only marvel at it. This site is a gift.
Wonderful find! Thanks for sharing!
Imagine being a genius and a world class artist
Now imagine that and owning a Glowforge - that would be tops.
Hey I have one out of three, I’ll call it a win!
There are a few good scans on WikiMedia:
where you can also read about the copyright status depending on where you live.
Additionally the Gutenberg Project provides several of his books for free, including illustrations:
It’s a huge mess. Varies by country. Then, it varies upon interpretation of whatever laws. Lots of museums claim copyright to the scans and photographs of 2D stuff (paintings and drawings) even though the actual work is in the public domain (to generate revenue). Though that’s (scans/photos of 2D work) a very contested right of ownership.
You’ll even find a lot of that stuff on Getty, Alamy, and other stock image sites.
You have an incredible talent. You’ve definitely got more than just “one out of three.”
You forgot to count your Glowforge!
I used one of those designs on my poker set box!
Amazing stuff! I found his rendition of the first 3d printer. Wow. I wonder if he had the troubles with PLA and the first layer printing correctly that I do. Wait, that could be a laser not a 3D printer. Looks like you have to move the laser head with your hand. What? No flashing button…Some genius!
