    I used to use pages from Smash Hits or xmas wrapping paper. Couldn't be doing with Anaglypta or whatever it was called.

    I remember having to do this at secondary school.

    One boy used a poster from a football magazine, & the turn of the 1990s Spurs team ended up with a selection of beards, moustaches, glasses, arrows through heads etc.

    I've still got an old German text book with some wallpaper on from my old room, which only a few months after it was redecorated was turned into a bathroom and shower room. You can still see some of it on the wall at the back of the shower room under sink cabinet.

    One of my mates at school backed his maths book with the centrefold of an adult magazine. I'll never forget the teachers face when he discovered it and the look on my mates face when he was sent to the headmaster's office.

    I suppose we all had some crazy mates at school but this guy was up for anything - at least he made the school years bearable, lol.

    I made the fatal mistake of using a poster out of one of my Karate magazines.

    My French teacher decided to make us all talk about what we had backed our books in easy enough for people talking about pop groups or footy teams but imagine trying to go on about a 5ft 90 year old with 2 ft beard wearing pjs lol

    Default Back Your Books at School

    When i was at school,we were told we could cover our exercise books with any picture we liked,aslong as it was decent.I still have a few up in the attic.The school did have a preference for plain covering,but we all use to wrap pictures of Debbie Harry and Blondie on our books.In the first form,i was still scared of the teachers,so i would tow the line and cover my books in wallpaper.But,as i got older,i would cover them in pictures of punk and new wave bands.
    Anyone else cover their books with pictures? What pictures did you use?

    When I was little Mum would cover my books with left over wallpaper. When I was old enough to do it myself I'd use birthday or Christmas wrapping paper, and then went on to use magazine covers (Jackie, Blue Jeans etc)

    I forgot about this! We used to do this in Nottingham! I remember the first time I did it my mum helped me. My first biology book was covered in a mustard-yellow flowery felt type wallpaper.....!

    I remember having books where the entire cover was actually made out of wallpaper. They were about A4 in size with plain paper inside and they used anaglypta for the cover so it was thick. Later on, when we graduated to lined exercise books we weren't allowed to cover them
