How can I make a scanned document into a reasonably sized PDF?

Let's go overkill. Every stock photography website have some photo resources with decayed book textures. You can download them and add them as a watermark on each page with Add Pages To For the text itself, you'll need some work and replace the text from one font to another one. Many old "decayed" fonts are available on the free download websites. You'll have to change the font using illustrator, manually and page per page. You'll can add some elements of randomness such as rotations the text slighly to make it less straight. From photoshop, you also can add a book binding layer over left pages and right pages with the book shadow and bevel the the left or right, according to the pages order. Add some random noise with the photoshop standard filter. After all of that, you can export each of the page into a jpeg image, in high resolution but in a low compression quality. You can finally bind all the pages back using Add Pages To pro. - maybe faster solution . print your document and paste the pages inside a real book, then scan the book...
