Free book covers compiled into one image

Since a lot of people are running into problems with the texture limit in Octane, I thought I would post this collection of book covers I recently put together. There are about 50 book covers in the image. I provided a high res (4096x4096) and low res (2048x2048). In the high res, each book is 350 pixels high, so they wont look great in extreme close up shots, but as you can see from my preview, they work great for anything else. In the lower right of the image, there is a yellowish color that works good for the pages. In my preview, I just mixed a diffuse and glossy at 50%, still need to really finalize my material, get those specular bumps, ect , but just as this, it is working pretty well :)
Enjoy, and I hope these help some of you out.

.. thats a good workaround, quite simple, set up all textures inside one file and just move around UVW space, what if someone needs a 1024x1024 texture times 25, what is the limitation of a single texture file size in octane or software packages? - I tried the same approach for a project just because I wanted to get a quicker setup, ended up working with single files.. still nice solution
thx for the textures - is it free to use?

Ya, feel free to use it for whatever you want, there's a lot more book covers than I show in that image.

Where do you get the book covers from?

I got most of them from a free book file, but they were all separate images.
