Oldskull Art Pack II - The Bauer Treasury

Suggested Price $2.99

For use by e-book creators, designers, and Game Masters, Oldskull Art Pack II – The Bauer Treasury – features beautiful remastered renditions of select works by the celebrated Swedish master of faerie illustration, John Bauer. You may have noticed that I use Mr. Bauer’s works frequently in my own books and logos and website designs, and now you can do the same.

Over the years Bauer’s works have inspired many other influential artists and creators, including Brian Froud, Rebecca Guay, Jim Henson, and Kay Nielsen.

These works are within the public domain and can be used freely for creative and commercial projects. Bauer’s use of subtle watercolor and reflective inks does not always translate well to electronic imagery, and many of his best-represented works – being old or out of print – can be difficult to find. If you are a veteran image searcher, collector, or graphics designer, you are likely quite familiar with how difficult some of these images can be to capture in high quality un-watermarked renditions which are usable for print and electronic design. I have done the cleanup work for you, optimizing many of these works for use in e-book publication. You are welcome to modify the images further if you like.

This art pack contains the following 25 pieces as selected from the oeuvre of his works:


[1] Princess Tuvstarr Gazing into the Dark Waters

[2] “Good Evening, Old One,” Called the Boy

[3] “And a Merry Greeting to You, My Dear”

[15] Chivalry

[16] Great Julbocken, the Goat of Yule

Product Information
File Size:
112.39 MB
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
