About Me

Growing up, I always had a passion for reading old books, particularly ones that were richly decorated with amazingly complex illustrations. However, I only got hooked on collecting vintage ephemera when I bought my first set of Victorian trade cards from a dealer in the Niagara Falls area in 2002. Since then, I have been obsessively acquiring more antique paper and books from eBay sellers all around the world as well as antique dealers in Cleveland, Ohio and Ontario, Canada.


I scan images from my collection at high resolution (600 ppi or higher) and repair or enhance them in Photoshop. I am slowly working my way through digitizing the over 250,000 images (an ever-expanding number) I currently own and post many as free downloads on RealVictorian.com.
