The journals are dated between 1897 - 1903 "Journal des Demoiselles" (Ladies Magazine), they contain stories, articles and sewing and embroidery patterns etc. Plenty of fabulous advertisements too. A4 size, measuring 21cms wide x 30cms long approx. (8¼" x 11¾".)
We've also added a little extra, a copy of "Mon Ouvrage", from the early 1900s, an embroidery journal with patterns and templates.

All these pages have aged naturally and this has created a beautiful range of shades from antique white through ivory and beige to sepia.
The patina on these pages is amazing. The paper feels old and "time worn".
These pages are "fluffy" with irregular edges, they are "aged to perfection" and are in genuine antique condition, as you can see from the photos, they have "age spots" and edge discoloration which adds to their charm and authenticity. They have rough edges along their spines.
Most of these sheets have text/print on both sides.

*It is important to note that no books have been deliberately destroyed to create this pack. All of the pages here have been salvaged from books too damaged to re-sell or repair. We are simply recycling as much of these gorgeous old books as possible.

**Photo is an accurate representation of the bundle you will receive but the pages/journals may vary slightly from those shown in our images. We couldn't photograph all the pages but we promise it's a great mixture of illustrations and text that will delight the eye and excite the mind.
