Just what I was looking for, for a modern day version of a typical school punishment book no longer in print. Would you kindly tell me the wording of credit attribution please? and I'll update the interior files to credit your cover work! Thank You!

Hi there, you can credit the image as a "digitally enhanced vintage scan courtesy of Nicolas Raymond via freestock.ca". That's my own website for free stock photos where I benefit more from the exposure there than my dA account.

There is a "look inside" feature where yu can see the credits on the bottom of the first interior page. Cheers and thanks.

Thank you Mike :) There's a yearly book fair within walking distance from home, but of course my lazy self drove over =p Just asked at the entrance where the vintage books were and browsed through to find a few books with interesting designs and printed before 1923 to make sure they were in the public domain. Something like a couple dollars each, although I have to confess I spent considerably more on a showcase antique anatomy book but it comes with dozens of beautiful color illustrations... now just a matter of finding the time to scan them all when I also have an old atlas book on the backburner =D

No, it's a vintage book cover from an old novel. From its age and style I would say the decoration is more inspired from the British Victorian era.

Thanks Eve :heart: Got it for a couple dollars I think at a local book fair. Also bought a more expensive antique anatomy book full of beautiful illustrations, just wonder when I can find the time to scan them along with another antique atlas book I have lying around the house =p
