Free colour textures – foxglove stars & Great Expectations

Here’s the second set of free colour textures—you can expect more weekly, probably on a Wednesday. Each of these is sized to print at a resolution of 300dpi at A4 size.

First, we have a flat field of warm grey splashed with foxglove-purple stars. (Right-click on the thumbnail to download the full-size version.)

Next, we’ve got two different old-book textures. Again, right-click on the thumbnail to download the full-size version. The text on both is taken from Charles Dickens’s Great Expectations, and the first of these is very pale and washed-out.

The second is a mockup page from a cheap mass-market edition, probably published around 1912 and left on the shelf since then. Right-click on the thumbnail to download the full-size version. Incidentally, the font I used in this is Goudy Bookletter 1911, which is both beautiful and in the public domain.
