Book Selection for Your Etsy Shop

Books can be more than just reading material. They provide a canvas for creativity and inspiration. In my Etsy shop, I have carefully curated a collection of books with beautiful covers that are perfect for alteration projects. Let's dive into the selection and discover the charm of each book.

Leather Covered Books

  1. Grungy Worn Leather Cover (1873)

    This Italian book, titled "First Course of French Language," features a stunning leather cover with a grungy, worn appearance. A little birdie drawing and wax droppings add character to its pages, making it a delightful option for alteration.

  2. True Story of Milan (1830)

    With a smaller size and another lovely leather cover, "True Story of Milan" is in great condition. Although it's tempting to alter the cover, there are many other books to choose from.

  3. Beautiful Leather Cover (1834)

    Here's another book with a beautiful leather cover. Although some pages are falling out, the enchanting color of the paper makes it worth consideration.

Rag Paper Books

  1. Italian Book with Surprises (1873)

    This Italian book is a true treasure. Not only does it boast a gorgeous cover, but it also holds surprises within its pages. Maps and other unique elements make it a cool book to explore and possibly alter.

  2. French Book with Marbled Paper (1850)

    The marbled covers of this French book instantly catch the eye. Even though the book is falling apart, the pages with their intricate designs make it a valuable item for alteration.

  3. Latin Book with Nice Paper (1828)

    If you have a penchant for Latin, this book is for you. Its lovely leather spine holds pages with exceptional paper quality, making it an excellent choice for alteration or simply adding to your library.

Books for Alteration

  1. Falling Apart Books

    Some books in the collection have seen better days. These books, although in disrepair, can still serve a purpose for creative minds who seek to alter them. Their worn-out pages and intricate covers provide endless possibilities.

  2. Old Dictionaries

    These super old dictionaries from 1796 are fascinating pieces of history. Although they are in disrepair, they contain valuable red paper that can be used for various artistic projects.


In my Etsy shop, I offer a range of books perfect for alteration. From leather covered books with worn-out charm to rag paper books with surprises within their pages, each book holds creative potential. Whether you're looking for a unique addition to your library or materials for your creative endeavors, there's something for everyone. Explore the collection, and let your imagination run wild.
