Books was created for a library/writing forum. It features things you might find in a library or on a writing desk.

The fonts used in it are Times, Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, and Sans-serif.
Font sizes range from 65% to 100%, except for the forum name which is 150%.
It's main backgrounds are stacks of books on a desk and slightly crumpled paper. It's colors are a collection of browns, tans, and white.

These are thumbnails. You can click on them to see a larger image.
