On Friday the Internet Archive announced that they are in the midst of uploading 14 million images from their book collection to Flickr. More than two million of the public domain images are already available on the Flickr Commons collection, Internet Archive Book Images. The images are sourced from 2 million books spanning the past 500 years and each image includes accompanying text from its source, making the entire collection searchable by keyword (for instance, “octopus”).
