The first chapter of the book has a decorative border around each page. This is a floral red border. You could use it as a photo border, although you might want to change the colour if you do that.

Since the book didn’t fit on my scanner with the pages open (at least not without destroying the rather fine binding), I scanned a little over half of the border, cut out the text from the middle of the page, and flipped the half I’d scanned to make a rectangle. If you want it to be in different proportions, take a slice out of the middle, either horizontally or vertically.
