*Update: I’ve added this second version of the same Vintage Octopus Image, the dimensions are smaller, but the resolution is higher. Just wanted to give you another option for your projects!
This looks like an Octopus to me but according to the Early Antique Natural History book that this image was scanned from, it’s actually a Common Cuttle-fish. The book has no date in it, but my research suggests that it was published around 1840-1845 in London. Anyway, whatever species he may be… he has lots of awesome looking curly legs, and is such a fun graphic to play with! You might like another Vintage Cuttle-fish image from the same book HERE. Wonderful to use in your Nautical or Coastal themed DIY Home Decor projects, Crafts or Graphic Designs.
