8 Skull Images
This is a grouping of different Skull Images. These are all Vintage Black and White Clip Art Images scanned from Antique books. Most are diagrams from old Anatomy books. There is also one image of Leg bones as well and a classic Skull and Crossbones Image. These would be great for using in your Spooky Halloween Crafts or Graphic Design Projects!
Vintage Anatomy Skull Clip Art and Bone Images
Here is the latest addition to this spooky collection! Shown above is a classic looking front facing black and white skull clipart image. He has quite a lot of teeth! This one came from a Circa 1840’s book.
You may have seen these before, I originally posted these several years ago. Recently Pottery Barn came out with some fabulous canvas wall hangings, for Halloween, using these exact same Bone and Human Skull images! So, I’ve re-scanned the images at a much higher resolution for you, and you can download the Printable PDF’s for both, in case you would like to make your own. And if you would like a tutorial, stop by reader Mandi Tremayne’s blog to get all the info on how to create amazing PB inspired Halloween wall hangings for your home, at a fraction of the cost.
Laughing Skull Image
This one is a new addition to the site, that I just scanned recently. He was scanned from an Old Dictionary. Here we see a side view of a Skull with his mouth hanging open as if he is laughing. This one is also a black and white diagram.
Skull and Crossbones Image
This is an early Halloween Image of a Skull and Crossbones. This one was scanned from a Circa 1828 Antique Printer’s Book. Rather a creepy looking image. I would imagine it was used for Poison Labels and that sort of thing. It reminds me of some of the headstones that my husband and I saw in a very old Graveyard in Boston, on our trip there over the Summer. I was surprised by how many of the stones had those spooky looking Skulls on them, and couldn’t imagine how the surviving loved ones could possibly feel comforted by looking at that, during visits. I guess things were different back then!
Skull Side View Images
This Vintage Skull Image Diagram came from an old Anatomy book of mine. This one has his mouth slightly open (nice opportunity for a speech bubble perhaps?) and it has the parts of the Skull labeled too, which is kind of cool.
This is a basic Vintage Skull Clip Art image. Another side view only this one is facing towards the right. This graphic came out of an early Natural History book. He’s just a simple image, not numbers or letters on this one. This guy was used to create the Cool Vintage Skull Banner Project found HERE. And the fun DIY Skeleton Match Books HERE.
This is a Vintage Anatomy Skull Image! This one was scanned from an Antique Anatomy book, he’s labeled “The Head”. It’s an old Engraving and has incredible detail. I left all the original numbers in place, I think it adds an authentic touch to it! So perfect for your spooky Halloween Craft or DIY Projects! You might also like the Skull and Fabric Art Project Tutorial that I posted a couple of years ago, you can find that one HERE.
I hope you enjoyed this collection of Skull clipart images. You might also want to check out our Best Vintage Halloween Images Post HERE.
