I found this gem yesterday on russian torrent tracker and thought that it could be useful for some of you as a design reference. It is scanned book from 16th century! There are more than hundred pages of hand-painted costumes from Western and Eastern Europe, Middle East and Africa. Dated back to 1560 - 1570. Quality is meh, but what did you expect from sixteenth century concept artist?
Download here. (54MB, 152 images, ~1050x800px)
And I also have a large collection of unusual swords and daggers. I can upload them too if anybody cares.
BTW, admins, if this is wrong thread for stuff like this, feel free to move it to the proper thread.

Honestly your timing could not be better. I was just looking up this exact thing, and straight from the period itself, fantastic!

You have to download a exe though, and the rar is there alright, but it installs one of those spammy tool bars. I uninstalled it and it dosn't seem to be the type that always comes back, but beware.
The images are pretty... funny though. Nothing I've ever seen before.
Just tried it with a Windows. I see the problem.
Sendspace makes it's downloads come with an accelerator, which makes it come in an exe.
You can simply turn off the accelerator to download the rar normally, but the option to do that can be easily overlooked.
You chose a bad site to host this file, I think. Mediafire would be better.
