I don’t know how many of you are familiar with Pinterest. It is a social networking site that focuses on sharing cool images with other users. When you find an image or article that you like you can pin it – kind of like making a bookmark for it. The nice thing about Pinterest is you can then organize boards that collect together your pins based around a particular theme. Other people can then follow those boards and see what you’re up to.
As you can probably guess, I follow a lot of boards that feature Viking themes and Valkyrie artwork. There are some really stunning images out there that I would not have run across if I wasn’t on Pinterest. (Like the awesome picture I’m using for this post.)
My own boards feature my artwork or neat images I’ve found. I also like to start a board for whatever book project I am involved in (or just thinking about.) I pin stuff that I find inspirational or might want to use for reference at a later date.
Here are a few boards that I think you should check out:
Modern Viking Crafts – modern day interpretations of traditional Viking work
Norse – a nice mix of new and old Viking-related items from tools to posters and funny images
Viking – Anglo-Saxons – lots of great illustrations and really good photos of people in authentic dress from these two ancient cultures
Go on and check them out. If you have any favorite boards, show them some love by posting a link in the comments.
