Free Printable: Vintage-Inspired Anatomy Book Labels


Create unique vintage-inspired books using free anatomy book labels! 


Did you know I graduated from college with a degree in Exercise Science?  

Yup,  I studied exercise physiology, biomechanics and had my head buried in biology, chemistry and human anatomy and physiology books for years.  I even had the opportunity to study a human cadaver, which was incredibly fascinating and something I will never forget. 

Although I never put my degree to use, (I got married when I was 22, just 2 months after graduating college, fell into a 10 year career as an insurance agent then became a full-time DIY/home decor blogger) I still have a love for anatomy and physiology.  In fact, I have all my old anatomy books from college that I can't bring myself to get rid of.  

So, it should be of no surprise that I decided to combine my love of vintage and anatomy to create vintage-inspired anatomy books!

Disclaimer: Please note, these books were already falling apart and/or damaged.  I love and use vintage books in my decor, so please don't hate me for cutting books apart 😬.

Okay, now that that's out of the way, let's get to the super easy, super budget-friendly, vintage-inspired books.  This quick five minute project doesn't even need a tutorial, but just in case, here ya go. 

Supplies for vintage-inspired anatomy books

STEP ONE:  
Print anatomy book labels, which can be found HERE.  (Please note:  these were created and designed by me, Little House of Four and are for personal use ONLY) 

PRINTING TIPThe anatomy labels were sized for the Reader's Digest books that I used.  If you are using smaller books you may need to reduce the scale of the images.  This can be done under your printing settings before printing. 


STEP TWO: 
Cut front and back cover off each book using a sharp craft knife.

Cut out anatomy book labels and attach them to the books using a thin layer of Mod Podge.
