Thank you Zoe, and yes, I did. I scanned in the covers of the original books, reduced them and printed them at the best quality setting my old printer can manage. I waxed the covers with clear wax (boot wax!) and glued them over a piece of thick card, then added the book spines in fine cotton or thin paper.

Great job. One day I'll give that a go.

The wax works well to give the desired finish, excellent books.
