Antique Book Cover Digital Download

TGIF! I hope you all had a nice week and have something fun to look forward to this weekend. Isn’t the above graphic lovely? It’s (modified) from an antique book I found at our our local library’s book store for a whopping three bucks. The cover and spine are just so beautiful. The book is Famous Poems of Standard Authors, circa 1890.

Gifted with an inscription for Miss Lishman.

Here is a touched-up image of the slightly soiled but beautifully designed cover for your enjoyment. Click to enlarge.Let me know if you make something with the image, I’d love to see it!

    Is there any chance you would offer this image without any changes? I would really appreciate it if you did.

    Oh my gosh!! This book is so perfect! Is there *any* way you would consider uploading a scan of the entire cover? I would love to make a mini-book out of this. Thank you so much!

    Hi Cathe,

    I also like to make things from paper and then give it away. As a gift for my girlfriends birthday last year I made a little book to hold a credit card gift card. Now, I used your blue book for a similar one for the wedding of a colleague. Please send me your email and I wil send you some pictures, so you have an idea what I mean.
    Grtz. Bert
