Old paper texture tends to be poetic, full of attitude, or emotion-filled thus it is one of the most wanted textures in graphic and web design. Its brown, dirty, crumpled, torn and sometimes grungy appearance speaks well of the past, that is – the story that makes it appear as it is. If an old paper is taken from an old book, or manuscript, one can always see a vestige of having been stored for ages from its appearance. A tear or crumpled look would suggest mishandling of some sort, and so on.
Because paper is used as a container or platform for writings, it becomes ingrained in our consciousness that our accounts of history are contained in paper, especially old ones. This is the reason why old paper textures are prime candidates as background materials in graphic and web design that sports that look and feel of being archaic or retro vintage.
