Dirty Pulp: 7 Grunge Paper Textures

Ahhh...paper textures. The staple of any good texture diet. I found these particular paper in an old and dark basement and they may be some of my favorite textures I've posted here on Lost and Taken. I guess I'm just a sucker for a good, dirty paper texture (who isn't, right?).
