Vase Urn

How to paint an old book?

Hi, im currently painting my art project for school. In the painting are a few apples i;ve drawn up, a withering rose, a mantel clock, burning candle and a vase/urn looking object! There are a few books in there as well, which the mantel clock is sitting on. So far, i have used golden, browns and reds. So i suppose the piece looks quite elegant and luxurious. Im wanting to make the books look very old. Almost falling apart. I have no idea how to paint them!

Can anyone give me tips ?

Thanks!

Colours to use: Burnt Umber, Raw Umber, Titanium White, Naples Yellow with maybe a touch of crimson. One trick is to not fully mix your colours, just swirl the top of a brush handle through them and this will give you varying shades of brown, off-white, ivory, rust, etc. Add flecks with a rigger brush and shadows by deepening the overall colour with a tiny hint of Mars Black.
