Amazing resource for primate photos and illustrations

The The Nash Collection of Primates in Art and Illustration is an extensive collection of (mostly) copyright free depictions of primates.  It is searchable by scientific or common name and includes some beautiful and fascinating images.  A companion website is the PrimateImages: Natural History Collection, which includes tons of photos with varying copyright protection.

Side Note:  Yes, I am aware of Google's Image Search capabilities. What I like about this is how that these collections are curated.....so the taxonomic identifications should be trustworthy, and you actually know the source of the image (illustrator or photographer).

A Slow Loris on the cover of Life Magazine in 1951.  Inexplicably depicted in a coffee mug.
