Free Hi-Res Old Grunge Paper Textures

It’s time for another high resolution texture set. This time it’s all about grunge paper textures taken from old books. As a bonus there’s even a nice book cover texture for you to download. Due to the enormous size (about 7MB each) of the textures I will not offer a single zip file containing all the images. Instead you have to individually download each texture by clicking on the preview. I hope you don’t mind. The files are perfect for both web and print jobs to your designs a more organic or vintage feel.
As always these textures are free for personal and commercial use without the need to credit. All I’m asking is that you don’t sell or redistribute these files or claim them as your own. Enjoy!
