Commons Archive is an unofficial project to house source materials for Wikimedia Commons.
Wikimedia Commons, operated by the Wikimedia Foundation, is an invaluable repository of freely-licensed and public domain works that can be reused for both commercial and noncommercial purposes. However, for technical and philosophical reasons, they only permit the upload of a small subset of possible file formats. Unfortunately this means that certain source materials used to produce these files are lost, which could prove invaluable if the file needs to be modified or creatively reused. Such source files can be hosted here on Commons Archive.
We currently have 297 files. To browse our files, see Special:ListFiles.
This project is based on a old fork of old commonsarchive.org - which is no longer online.
