I took a photograph of this Victorian book (1860) looking almost straight down from above; I have taken away the background, but kept the shadows. You could easily remove the text from th right-hand page and replace it. The book is also featured here together with some of the Victorian borders and mediaeval initials therein.

There is also a file with layers for the Free (libre, open source) image editor gimp, version with layers; if you use this, there is a text layer in the image with some notes. You’ll probably also want to make sure the background shows through the shadows (e.g. use “darken only” as a layer mode).
