Found this site a couple of years ago, but didn't bookmark it. I could have used it last year but couldn't recall where to find it. Thanks!

This is very handy. Not sure there's much else to say. Thanks!

The right Flickr keywords can often get what you need too. For example, if I need a Tile I will check out Azulejo.

Brick Bonus: Long Video of John H. Conway (streaming RealVideo) talking about bricks. "There's a hell of a lot of discussion of what kind of bond is best."

How bizarre! I was just at this site a few days ago. I think it was linked from blender.org or something. Thanks for reminding me to bookmark it!

Image after is good too, for raw materials. Also, frankly enough, cgtextures.

The right flickr keywords can often get what you need Vacapinta, but the Mayang photos are available for commercial use for free as long as you give them credit for their work. I've been using this site for commercial design work for a few years. it's a great resource. Another great free resource that only asks for credit is the NOAA Photo library.

Thanks! I grabbed a bunch for wallpapers, is that what they are mainly for? (clueless)

Great post.

Just to add to the mix, although more pattern rather than texture in nature, there's a big vault of decorated paper at Manchester Metro Uni. Alas the images are not anywhere near as big as Mayang provides. Thanks Wolfdog.

Nice pictures there for talking about wallpaper groups, peacay.

I had this vision in my mind of discovering a parallel world to tupperware parties with wallpaper groups. Heh. Thanks for enlightening me. I didn't see much in the way of biological origins such as with the pioneer pochoir work by Séguy (lots more at NYPL searching on that name) and decorative insect work by Habert-Dys in the late 19th century however.
