Your paper pack is of Antique (100 years or more old) book pages. The photo's are representational of all the books and are representational of what you will receive. I remove them from books bound for the trash bin. All are over 100 years old. Rescuing a book and giving it new life in your art and mine is my goal. You will receive 40 pages minimum, I occasionally will add extra (free) those with minor imperfections such as foxing, stain, small rip etc.
INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING AVAILABLE PLEASE REQUEST QUOTE.
The pages in this pack are in the U.S. public domain, so you can do just about anything with them. You can scan all to make images for digital art and reproductions for tags, digital collages etc. You can use all the pages in your original art work.
These books change from time to time as I acquire new additions and use up the old.

Returns & exchanges
Because of the nature of the items please choose carefully I do not refund on digital items. Refunds of the purchase price only will be made on physical items if they are returned in the original condition.
The images I use are, to the best of my knowledge, royalty and copyright free. To assure this I research for original copyright and renewal notices also I have written to publishers and corresponded with retail sellers.
Images and collage sheets are 300 dpi which is the best resolution for printing. I spend hours altering, restoring and combining images for each collage. This includes major repair, cleaning up images, selecting which part of an image to include, combining images and sizing them. With the number of images on most collages this work can add up to as much as 25 hours per sheet
IMAGE AND PAPER ACQUISITION
The graphic images come from internet searches, secondhand stores, estate and garage sales, antique stores and retail sellers. I also do my family genealogy and use some of my personal documents.
I love to rescue antique books bound for the dumpster or burn barrel. I remove the pages and sell them for artistsan to use in their work and I use them in my own. Mostly I work with books over 100 years old because there is so little interest in repairing them. I scan the images, and repair them if needed, to add to my collages and printed sheets.
With your purchase you obtain the use of the images without limit in your personal crafts and, if altered, in your professional craft or art for sale. Almost anything legal you can do if it does not make it easy for another person to obtain the images.

You can print this sheet using the paper of your choice. They can be printed on sticker paper, photo paper, card stock, card sets, iron on transfers, and regular inkjet or typing paper. This flexibility makes it easy for you to use these images in your altered art.
