Vintage illustrations as desktop wallpaper

Maraid Design, a small firm in York, England, regularly posts scans of vintage book illustrations blown up to desktop wallpaper sizes. Pick the design that fits your monitor and add some retro goodness to your office! The blue lady gazing lovingly at her refrigerator is keeping me company today. Via the Herman Miller blog.
