Vintage paper pack, 31 pages 1790s to 1970s, dictionary, entomology, gazetteer and sci-fi pages for altered art, collage, decoupage, mixed media art. Many art and craft uses for these. 30 original pages. Some of these pages would make great small product photography backgrounds. If you are a resin artist you could also make great badges, bag charms, brooches, earrings, gift tags, key fobs or pendants from cutouts or scans of these!

CONDITION - PLEASE READ: vintage paper so as to be expected there is yellowing and signs of wear. All the pages are in clean vintage condition. I gently dust each page before it's packed up and remove any REMOVABLE surface marks, apart from pencil annotations, with an eraser. PLEASE ZOOM TO SEE MORE DETAIL. All pages are printed on both sides unless otherwise stated. The 1798 dictionary pages in particular are very yellowed and foxed and sport a couple of ink blots.

SOURCES:
- 12 PAGES from a 1958 edition of the AA Road Book for England and Wales. Comprising 7 sides of gazetteer pages, places beginning with "K" and "L", including a few small black and white street plans. 10 sides of beautiful illustrations, black and white line drawings. 3 sides of full page black and white street plans - Leeds, Leicester, Liverpool and Birkenhead. 3 sides of coloured maps of Greater London and the key map to the Greater London maps.

- 6 PAGES of text including a few tiny black and white diagrams from a 1970s entomological textbook, complete with library stamps. (I bought this in a library booksale many years ago.) Wasps, bees and ichneumon flies.

- 8 PAGES taken at random from a 1970s edition of Analog Science Fact and Fiction as it was called then (it changed to Fiction and Fact in 1992). 8 sides of text, 1 full page advert for "The Best of Soviet SF" and 1 full page black and white illustration which looks a bit William Blake-ish to me.

- 5 PAGES taken at random from a 1798 dictionary, beautifully yellowed and foxed and ink blotted. "Covenanter" to Cradle", "Flagship" to "Flew", "Mortice" to "Multiply", "Ridinghood" to "Rope" "Tinman" to "Toss".

CAVEAT: Rescued from books too battered to be worth rebinding and of no intrinsic value.

IMPORTANT, PLEASE READ - I apologise for the recently raised postage prices for destinations outside the UK, this has been unavoidable due to the Royal Mail increases. I have worked out that I can send everything within the UK as a Large Letter so this is a saving but unfortunately this option does not exist for destinations outside the UK. However...EXTRA ITEMS IN AN ORDER DON'T ATTRACT ANY INCREASE IN POSTAGE! And...IF I HAVE OVER-CALCULATED POSTAGE I WILL ALWAYS REFUND YOU!

PLEASE NOTE: The pages in the photographs are amongst the ones you will receive and are 100 percent typical of the pages in this pack. Sorry I can't show every page but if you'd like to see more photos please convo me:)

CUSTOM ORDERS WELCOME! I have a large amount of paper inventory and will always be delighted to put together a customised pack for you. See my other listings and sold items for a flavour of what I have in stock and if you like what you see drop me a convo and we'll take it from there:)
