25 Deconstructed Vintage Book Textures

The paper and book textures I release here on L&T are some of the most popular ones, and with good reason... they can be used in nearly every type of design and are perfect for adding just a hint of texture to your work. Today's set of 25 vintage book textures came from eight late 19th and early 20th century books I purchased at a small bookstore near where I live. I love sifting through the books discovering naturally worn textures and reading the inscriptions made many decades ago. Hopefully you guys can find some great uses for them!

Click on the textures below to download the high-res version or download them all in a zip file at the bottom of the post. Enjoy!
