Assortment of 30+ mostly vintage book pages - every page dates between 1946 and 2010, and only one 2010 book got swept up to be distressed with this batch, so its pages make up less than 5% of this group. The rest are at least 20 years old.

Topic/contents are mostly English literature and criticism, some fiction, some non, some poetry and plays here and there. Very few illustrations/pictures in this batch.

Pages are moderately distressed, some naturally and some with a little help from me, but all are still completely legible. A few have chipped edges or small tears along the binding edge and occasionally a severe crease or fold but these are overwhelmingly complete, intact pages, just quite "weathered." If your assortment does happen to contain a page that is not whole, I'll make sure it's an extra and doesn't count as one of the 30.

Sheets vary in size from 7.5 x 5 to 10.75 x 8.25 inches.

These pages are largely the remnants of parts of my teaching and research libraries from academia, which I left not really willingly in 2015. So this is something of a destash and something of a check to make sure I'm not headed towards hoarder territory over here! I've used them for collage, paper mache, bead-making, petition-paper-making, sketching, labeling, gift tagging and wrapping, note cards, tons of stuff you can do. Heck, I even made some of those folded and/or rolled paper holiday wreaths with these. And I don't even *like* stuff like that! Hence the sanity check...

Now I have to figure out what I'm going to do with 50 different editions and translations of Beowulf. (sigh)

I can also list other genres/topics, page sizes, assortment sizes, degrees of distressing/antiquing, and in some cases even languages.  Just write if you're looking for something you don't see. I was a medievalist by training when I was in academia - I can come up with some weird paper.
