Clip Art for Desk Top Publishing
ART MART is a collection of non-copyrighted art for use in Desk
Top publishing. This small .ARC file is a collection of 13
pieces designed as a sample of the type of clip art available.
Several others, with approximately 250 separate pieces, have been
collected, edited and stored in .ARC files by group. If it
appears that there is any need for this type of material, they
will be posted.
SOURCE OF ART:
Most of the clips in the ART MART collection have been obtained
from commercial Clip Art books, mainly from Dover Press. The
Dover books all contain a paragraph which states:

The various pieces of clip art were cut from the books and
catalogs, glued onto a piece of non-reproducing blue paper and
scanned by a Dest PC Scan Plus, using Dest's PUBSPAC software.
The clips were saved as a PCPaintbrush Plus cut out file (.PCC).
Most of the clips were then edited using PCPaintbrush Plus in
order to get horizontal and vertical lines straight, clean up
glue marks, etc. The edited files were then resaved, again as
The scanning was done on an IBM XT with an EGA card. The files
were edited on an AT&T 6300 monochrome monitor, which was much
easier to work on. The resulting .PCC files can be read directly
by Aldus' PageMaker and, I think, by Ventura Publisher. I do not
know if then can be edited further by any machine other than the
Good Luck. If the files are used I will upload more. A complete
index is available and will be uploaded if there appears to be a
need for it.
