I recently acquired a flat-bed scanner for my iMac and it has opened up a whole new world of texture creation for me. I wanted to break in my new toy the right way: so I went a little overboard and created 42 (forty two!) vintage paper textures for you guys. These textures were scanned from late 19th and early 20th century books that I bought from a used book store around here. I love how each and every piece of paper has it's own character and tells just as much of a story as the actual words in the book.
