Wellcome images in public domain

Good news ! The Wellcome trust has released its Wellcome images in public domain. The wealth of collection portrays the 2000 years of human culture. The images are released under the Creative Commons Licence. From their press release:

Wellcome Images is the world’s leading source of images on the history of medicine, modern biomedical science and clinical medicine. All content has been made available under a Creative Commons Licence, which allows users to copy, distribute and display the image, provided the source is fully attributed and it is used for non-commercial purposes.

This news is quite exciting for me. In its collection, I searched for the images that I have been looking for, such as—Galileo’s drawings of moon’s phases, Vinci’s illustration of human anatomy, etc. This collection will be of greate value to our History of Science Exhibition.
