Reproduction endpapers

The original endpapers on this children's book (The Boys and Girls of Polly's Ring) had become too brittle to work with. I located a distributor of reproduction late-19th and early-20th-century endpapers and ordered them from England. They weren't an exact match but kept the look close enough, especially after I tea-dyed them to lead naturally to the aged paper of the text.
