In a new list from our series of ebook-related overviews, we’ve picked for you the most beautiful book-style iPad wallpapers from around the web.
You can’t replace the pleasure of reading a print book with the book application on the iPad, but at least you can keep its beauty always with you. Simply, make iPad’s wallpaper or home screen look like a book lover’s dream.
When selecting the download dimensions, make sure you’re picking the ones that are higher than your iPad’s screen size. All the images below fit lower-resolution Apple tablets: iPad Mini, and 1st/2nd iPad. However, there are less pictures that are large enough to look crisp on Retina displays of iPad 3 and 4.
Below there are screen dimensions of all iPad models (height x width):
- iPad Mini – 1024 x 768 px
- iPad 4 – 2048 x 1536 px
- iPad 3 – 2048 x 1536 px
- iPad 2 – 1024 x 768 px
- iPad 1 – 1024 x 768 px
