I think it is worth supporting it. Wikimedia Commons is one of its sources.

Hi Everton,

I’m writing to you today about one of the Open Knowledge Foundation’s
projects *The Public Domain Review* which is in need of your support at a
crucial time.
 The Public Domain Review is a web-based journal showcasing the *most
wonderful and unusual out-of-copyright works available online*. Through its
curated collections and articles by leading scholars, writers, and
archivists it entertains and amazes us with the beauty and breadth of the
public domain -- *celebrating* and *raising the awareness* about the value
of our* shared cultural commons* at a time when it is increasingly under


With its initial funding now run ended, the Public Domain Review *urgently
needs your donations to continue its work*.

The Review has been the brainchild of Adam Green who has dedicated immense
time and effort - most of it as a volunteer - to editing and curating the
Review over the last two years. The wonderful video calling for your
support is another entirely volunteer effort created under Adam's direction
(and featuring him in a starring role!).

 While operating on a minimal budget the Review has done an amazing job.
Highlights from last year include an article by *Man Booker prize winner
Julian Barnes* and attention from the likes of the *New York Times*,
Post*, *Vice magazine*, and the *Paris Review*.

 I therefore very much hope you will join me in supporting The Public
Domain Review and ensuring that it continues to showcase and celebrate the
incredible beauty and richness of the public domain.

All the very best,
