Lo these many blue moons ago, Peggy Adams wrote to ask me:

Hmmmmm, no, and I don't have a message like that archived anywhere I
thought to look for it. But my basic list of on-line and catalog
BUT FIRST, please be aware that there are copyright restrictions of
various sorts of clip art, and be aware of what those restrictions
are, and honor them. Each of the following sources needs to be
evaluated for its copyright adherence. Remember, artists are a lot
like farmers: they don't get paid for their work if people steal it.
And using someone's work while violating their copyrights is
**stealing.** Period. Whether or not some squint-spirted lawyer ever
hunts you down and sues your sorry tuchus. OK?
This is a commercial package, FoodShapes Computer Art
(.tif for Windows, .eps for Mac)
FoodShapes itself ("art and design catering to the food business")
TAMU's clip art site front door
Best-of-Web.com Food Clip Art
(includes an "animated popsicle" and "pitcher of KoolAid")
Mediaeval/Renaissance food clip-art
(mostly .gifs, some zipped PostScript)
I also use ClickArt, a CD-ROM-based collection (T/Maker Co., Mountain
View, CA). Also the clip art collections that come with CorelDraw
(various releases--I have 3.0, 4.0, and 7.0).
Sometimes there's something interesting in the /Publisher's Toolbox/
catalog--(800) 348-8331. Though generally it's too slicky and
expensive for our uses (we do pretty simple stuff).
My favorite catalog for clip art--well, usually I have about 1,400
of them lying around my office, and now I can't find a one...I think
it's called "Clip Art"--it has many reasonably priced
CD-ROM/diskette collections. Some good food art in it. The next time
they send me a catalog--which should be within hours :^) --I'll
pass along the title and contact # to y'all.
I don't buy a lot of clip art. It can be a very expensive way to be
visually trite. ;^D We use it sparingly, and generally only when
we're trying either to lighten the weight of something heavily gobbed
down in text...or to provide a visual icon for navigating by.
Hope this helps, Peggy.

On the Borscht Scale, zero being NO BORSCHT and
10 being BORSCHT-O-PLENTY, I give them a big zero.
Keep in mind that I don't like borscht, so zero
is good. --Mister 3D
