Book Cover Beauty

Thaddeus of Warsaw, by Jane Porter, 1844


I have a collection of antique books, and although some are quite wonderful and interesting in content, there are some that I admit I purchased purely on aesthetics. A few of my old books are in dire condition, but some of their covers are so beautiful that I thought that as a collection, they would make great backgrounds to share. I scanned a few of my books in their as-is condition, you may or may not want to clean them up in Photoshop. These will be wonderful for paper or digital collage, ATC backgrounds, scrapbooking, or even as background images for photographing such things as handmade jewelry or small vintage items for sale. I think I will print some out and glue them to the fronts of sketchbooks and journals. Let me know if you use any, I’d love to know what you make.
