Patina...








I have a passion for old books. The older the better. The patina can't be matched! You may use the photo at the top anyway you choose in your art. Please do not sell or reproduce the image as is. The other scans, have fun!

Old worn and discolored pages are beautiful and comforting...except when one encounters the dreaded mold! Thanks for sharing.

I grew up around antique books and have come to love that unique smell that eminate from them. Nothing better than old books, I tell you. They just don't make 'em like they used to.
