The black, white and orange pages are collectible Americana, ephemera, and antique paper goods for all kinds of projects - collages, mixed media and multi media art, greeting cards, decoupage, wall decor, scrapbooking. The binding edges remain rough to allow you to keep their "weathered look," or you may trim them to suit your own imagination. The pages are printed on one side only. The drawings are printed on a sepia colored background. Each page measures 8-1/4 inches by 6" and is blank on the back.
They are in good vintage condition, with a bit of age discoloration and a few light stains in the margins. There are no tears beyond their obvious removal from a book.
