Default Book themed material

I have been trying to find some material that has a book related theme. I can find letters, numbers, alphabet but nothing with books. Does anyone have any suggestions where I might find some? I am a librarian and would like to do some projects for work. Thanks in advance.

I think Connecting threads just came out with a "book" or library theme fabric - try that.

Yes - the new book fabric at Connecting Threads is awesome! Here's a link (but please don't buy it all because I want some!):

I just saw some fabric by Timeless Treasures on their website that had Books for the theme in the fabric. Hope that helps

WOW--thanks for the info. I did look at Connecting Threads and it would work great. I will check out the other website soon.

Not book fabric, but a bookshelf quilt.

Scroll down to "Book Block for the Library Quilt"

We carry this book fabric, would it work? It's quite lovely with a little bit of gold metallic, just like the gilt on the binding of classic old books. This is by Timeless Treasures.

Love the fabric from Timeless Treasures too. I have to formulate my plan (I'm good at flying by the seat of my pants) and decide what I want & how much. Thanks to everyone for the suggestions.
