On this page you can download 4 ornamental book cover patterns that are hundreds of years old.

The function of a book cover is to protect the pages of the book and to bind them together. Today, book covers are mostly made of paper and they are usually decorated with illustrations giving hints about the style, genre and subject of the book in order to attract potential buyers and accelerate sales.

The covers of old books were also meant to protect and bind the pages, but they were mainly made of leather and, instead of illustrations, there were beautiful ornaments, patterns and borders on them. We have discovered them in some old books with the theme of decorating books and turned them into vector graphics. As you can see in the picture, these are beautiful patterns that once adorned book covers, and today they may be used for various purposes.
