Recently updated! 85 unique digital book covers as well as alternate color options—totaling almost 200 in all—this collection contains two gigabyte's worth of the world's most beautiful book cover fronts and decorative doublures, many ornate and gilded, in full high-resolution of up to 4000 x 6000 + pixels. These measure anywhere from 8" x 11" all the way up to huge sizes of 15" +. Most are antique tomes from the 1700s-1800s.

Bonus: Also included are 38 beautiful unique book spines—plus 126 more color variations of them.

Some of the books these textures are from are extremely rare, some are priceless, and most are hundreds of years old. They were taken from original (source) scan .TIFs and ultra high-resolution photographs of the books so they have retained their original image quality. They have been cleaned up by me, color and white balance corrected and adjusted for use in any creative projects.

As these are fronts only, they are meant for creative projects; they are not meant to actually cover physical books with, but we have had some customers do just that and you can see their photos in our reviews! All of the books in this collection are safe to use in both personal and commercial projects.

PLEASE NOTE: Because old books naturally do not lie perfectly straight around the edges, a very small safe area was left around some of these book covers to avoid cutting off important and beautiful detail. This was done to preserve those details for you; as a result, you may have to do some of your own light cropping or erasing around edges to get rid of this small extra space, depending on what you want to use them in (especially if you plan to use them as clipart like in my previews). These are not transparent .PNGs and they are not all drag-and-drop ready! They do not come with shadows, so that you can use them in a variety of lighting situations.

As these greatly exceed the file size allowed on Etsy, your download will be a text file containing a link you can use to download the full .ZIP file.

Beautiful book covers! Great resolution as promised and great variety. I used this to make some digital art for a book I'm reading and was very happy with the vibe of the cover I picked.

These are perfect! And well worth the money! I bought a few others prior to this one and honestly I should have just gotten this one from the start lol. Has such an amazing variety and the covers are just wow - speechless! HIGHLY RECOMMEND

Beautiful images! I’m very pleased. They’ll be perfect for my project of covering thrifted hardcover books and giving them a lovely new “old” face. Thank you, Charlie!
