Description:

Anyone interested in swapping vintage book pages? :) I use vintage book pages in my junk journals, and also ripped pages in collages. I LOVE the way they look, and the texture and color of them when they're old and weathered :) I have so many books, and quite a few from other countries (french, russian, english, even macedonian!) and I'd love to swap to get more countries represented!

If you're participating from the states, english is fine, but if you have vintage books from other countries, include some of those pages!

If you're participating from another non-english speaking country, feel free to send any language you have!

Rules:

Let's say a minimum of 5 different book pages? You can send more if you wish.

Pages must be in relatively good condition, but it's ok to include browned pages, pages that have been written on, etc, as long as the pages are fully intact, and not too brittle.

You can rip or cut pages out of a book, but please try to do so carefully so as much of the page is included as possible. Ideally, if the book is bound with thread, you can cut the threads, and get 2 full pages without ripping! Try to do that if you can! (I'll try to make a video to show how I do it to post here!)

Pages can be folded once for ease of mailing (if you're sending a whole 2 page spread, you can fold it again for mailing).

Bonus for pages with pretty illustrations on them! :)

Newbies are welcome with a well filled out profile (I will check).

Veteran swappers must have a 4.9 min rating.

I will angel (but please don't make me! :) )

How old do they need to be... or look to be vintage?

I think anything 50 years or more would be considered vintage...so let’s say from 1970 or earlier
