Distorted circulation slip.

From the back matter of The Hair by Charles H. Leonard (1879). Does not include metadata indicating library of origination or date of digitization (but does include Stanford library artifacts).

"The image above displays text in a visually arresting state of flux—one indicating that the printed page (and often the content embedded upon it) is being warped, twisted and fundamentally changed through the process of digitization. The image’s symbolic distortion aside, this abstract textual representation also strikes me as aesthetically lovely."

From the back matter of Elements of Histology by Edward Klein (1785). Does not include metadata indicating library of origination or date of digitization.
