Free Texture Friday – Old Books

by Caleb Kimbrough October 28th, 2011 2 Comments / Click here to post a comment

There’s a tiny bookstore near me that has an entire room full of late 19th and early 20th century books, each one typically costs less than a dollar or two. I could spend hours in there searching through the old novels discovering naturally worn paper textures. I also love reading the inscriptions and notes made in the books a long, long time ago. They never fail to produce some of the most useful textures ever. Enjoy!
