17 More Old Book Cover Textures

You can never have too many book textures right? The response to last weeks "15 free book textures" was so strong I decided to go ahead and post another 17 for your downloading pleasure. All of the images were scanned by Sean Tejaratchi and given to Lost and Taken to redistribute to the design community as copyright free textures.

The textures are high resolution, large files (up to 15mb), and in the jpeg format. Below are five examples from the pack, and below that is the download link. Now what are you waiting for? Get downloading and designing. And yea, get a place to host your awesome images if you haven't done so already.

Hey, these are very cool, but when I downloaded the zip file (three different browsers, two different OSs), it always came out corrupted/incomplete. Am I the only one experiencing this?
