Beautiful texture packs! I love them.
What book are your images scanned from?
And if they are from a book, then how can the rights be yours?
They should be copyright to the book, right? Therefore you cannot have "rules" on the stock, isn't that right? I think you should list what book exactly all your stock is from.
Hello! All the images I used to create the textures found here came from The Backyard Astronomer's Guide by Terence Dickinson & Alan Dyers.

Technically the copyright for the original images would be to the photographer or whatever agency originally published them, and not necessarily to the book itself. I believe those credits are listed in the book, if I am not mistaken.

I do not claim, nor have I ever claimed, any rights to said images. I also don't put any rules on my textures for that very same reason. So long as they're not being used commercially, they're fair game for whatever people want to use them for. I'm not making any money off of them, and I don't think anyone else should, either. I just created them for fun, and if other people find them useful, great!

Having said all that, I appreciate your concerns about copyright! That's pretty important stuff. I'll try to get around to putting the name of the book in my descriptions soon in order to clear up any confusion. :)
Thank you so much, they really are gorgeous and I'm glad you shared them.
