Here are some public domain pctures of old books. You can do whatever you like with these, although you shouldn’t say that you made them! I (Liam R E Quin) do retain the moral right to be identified as author/creator. The one with the shelf visible was taken by my partner, who also explicitly assigned copyright to the public domain.

There are some more pictures from old books taken from an old book, too.

There’s something about leather-bound books; a lot of people collect leather books. For my own part I’m more interested in what’s inside the book than the fine bindings, but since some of these antiquarian books still look rather pretty, I thought I’d share some pictures!
