Antiqued Prints and Restored Illustrations from Black Baroque

These prints from Black Baroque feature beautiful restored illustrations dated from the 16th and 18th centuries. Each design is printed on a vintage paper from an existing book, giving the authentic color and feel of weathered pages.

I like how the overlay of image and text creates turns the pages into a canvas where words also become part of the artwork.
