I used a page from inside a book because there's a story here: the two women who wrote this book were talented trailblazing sisters who left their mark at the University of Minnesota through the Goldstein Museum of Design. Their book was reprinted 11 times, a roaring success! Well done, ladies. The small painting is a section of an abstract painting of mine. 

The whole book cover is sealed with varnish appropriate for acrylic paintings.

It's a real book cover, with real wear and tear from its previous life. All books were headed for the trash and I couldn't let the covers go to waste. I mostly use these inside my bookshelves so they have nothing on the back. You can hang them on the wall if you attach sticky strips, velcro, or other hanging hardware that you could glue/epoxy on the back. The book covers may bend over time if they are leaning against something, especially if you live in a damp climate. They'll flatten out again if you lay them flat underneath a heavy book.
