You don’t need permission to photograph a work if its copyright term has expired. For most works, and in most countries, copyright protection lasts for the lifetime of the author (artist) plus an additional period of at least 50 years. In a number of countries, this period is even longer. For example, 70 years after the death of the author in Europe, the United States of America and several other countries. If several authors are involved, then the term of protection is calculated from the death of the last surviving author. Note also that special rules may apply to certain specific kinds of works. It is, therefore, a good practice to check the applicable copyright law. For more information see this web site.

Have you ever been to Flickr? Huge huge photo site, and many of their photos are available under commons, which means that with permission you can use them. Though publishers and editors generally pay someone like me to design cover art.

If a little knowledge is a dangerous thing, then that makes me a burning truck filled with TNT hurtling through a rocket fuel depot.

that's Creative Commons license. Sorry, had a brain fart and couldn't think of the full term until after I'd already posted. but Flickr really is a great resource that I use all the time.

In the early days of synthetic oils there was a problem of seals shrinking but the formulation was adjusted to give the same swelling as non-synthetic oils. I doubt the problem still exists.
