I also get booksfrom the Internet Archive (www.archive.org) which has lots of scans of public domain and Creative Commons books, but the text is in terrible shape. Internet archive often has scans of first editions, so I can get the original illustrations from there. (the illustrations usually need lots of work).

Illustrations that are in public domain or Creative Commons are allowed to be re-worked and re-distributed.

I'm looking forward to more covers from you.
I think you are right. I checked one or two and mostly they seem to be too small. But I decided anyway that I rather like to make my own covers (with own pictures) than work on pictures of others. I think I got hooked on that AND then I can truly say that they are all mine!

I will give you more, free to use pictures when I have made some.
