Old Leather Book by enginemonkey Old Leather Book by enginemonkey
Lovely old stained leather book printed in 1640. Ovid's Metamorphosis. One of my favourite possessions! Wording on the front reads John Gunter, Domini 1600.

Sorry I couldn't get the edges to come out as crisp as the middle...darn scanner :shakefist:

If you make use of it please show me your work and give me a credit ta very much :D

I hope you don't mind if I use this as the cover of the field guide to my species (I'll link it back to you when I'm finished, so you can view the whole thing)

Older books textures are the best. Recently used it for a school project with a couple color and sizing modifications.

I'm using a modified version of this image as a background for an eBook cover design for a soon to be published book called ''Easterland'' by a chap called Patrick Henry Prentice. He's running a contest for a cover design at 99designs.co.u, so it's not a cert that my design will be chosen. Here's a link to the design I'm using this image for.

Thanks,
Richard

No problem. Thanks for allowing me to use your image. I didn't win the contest anyway :-( The author chose something that looked truly dreadful. Still, there's no accounting for taste.

Hello, I'd like to use one of this package in my fanbook!

Aside from uploading it to dA, I may also make some copies(maybe 10 or a little more) and sell it at a fan-event next month. It's not for commercial use but since I may get some cashes from it, I think I have to make sure: would it be OK?

I may also use other one's dA stocks, so I'm going to use one page to credit them altogether. I'll make descriptions which panel had used which one's stock.

Please let me know if you prefer me to credit them separately in the page stock be used.

Thanks!

This is a lovely, lovely book cover. (And a good book regardless of the cover!)

I'd like to use this as a background for a design in my Zazzle shop. But I wasn't sure what the license is for it. I'd be happy to credit you in whatever way you prescribe.

I would ask you to scan every single page if it wasn't too much work, LOL. xDDD That's amazing. We have books from the 60's and they're breaking apart.
