More Treasures!!!

Here are 3 more antique books that I have in my library
that I would love to share with you!.

"Laddie" is over 100 years old!

I love the front cover of this book!

Date Published: 1897

The page is missing on the date of publication but I am sure it is at least 100 years old also!

I love the inside cover in this book! 
This would be a great background for your art or web site!

Aren't these so cute?

Another dedicated to"Baby Dumpling"!

Poetry from the book
about Autumn!

The front and  back cover to an old school reader!

My "Special" Treasures


I am so excited to share this treaure with you!! This antique book was given to me by a  special family member and has a great deal of  sentimental value to me.  I couldn't wait to share this with you because  the book is over 100 years old and the drawings are simply amazing! The book cover , although very old, has such a quaint antique charm to it, it would make a great background or book cover for an alterd art book! I hope you will be inspired by the book and the drawings and make something espicially nice with the images. Please enjoy them as much as I have.


(I love this dark blue/teal color)

The little girl that first owned this book received it from her Father,
on December 26,  1906!

Old Paper

More Old Bookcovers

I experimented with  theses bookcovers to see what they would look like in different colors.  These could be used as backgrounds or *ESPECIALLY*  for an altered book project!!!


I hope you enjoy using these for your  altered art projects!  If you use these and would like to show off your work, then please link your work to this post  and I will proudly show post your work on my blog!!

*Remember, when clicking on the images, always RIGHT  CLICK to get a larger version and LEFT CLICK to save to your computer!

**Feel free to use these images for your own art work provided that you do not try to sell the images as  collage sheets or on a CD.
