CSA images are now available for purchase on istockphoto.com. This is great news for designers looking to avoid the classic clip art style that plagues typical stock illustration.
The collection was established by Charles S. Anderson dating back to the 1970’s and includes many pop-culture references – some that will make you smile. Perhaps more important, they capture a hand drawn authenticity missing from many modern commercial illustrations.
CSA photos have been included in collections around the world including:
The Museum of Modern Art, New York
The Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum, New York
The Nouveau Salon des Cent-Centre Pompidou, Paris
The Walker Art Center, Minneapolis
The Institute of Contemporary Arts, London
The Museum Für Gestaltung, Zürich
The Museum of Contemporary Art, Shanghai
The Museum of Modern Art, Hiroshima
Even if you are not a designer it’s still a fun collection to “flip” through. Check it out at: http://www.istockphoto.com/search/portfolio/8198330#10fb5355
