rawings add clarity to any presentation. Often they are much clearer than photos, enabling you point out and explain details that can't be seen easily any other way. We've collected and prepared several drawings that should prove useful as you prepare your report, project, or presentation. We've also included some visual aids that have been prepared using these drawings. Students, teachers, and scholars are welcome to use these in your project* if they will be helpful, or just look them over to glean some ideas.

We offer most of these drawings in different sizes so you can choose the size that best suits your needs. Left-click on the link to the size you want and the image will load. Right-click on the image and choose "Save image as" from the drop-down menu that appears.
