What are these things? And what do they say?

I bought these 2 pictures (1
and alternate 1
and alternate 2
) at an estate sale / yard sale about a month ago. The people who sold them knew nothing about their origins. My translation attempts have gotten bogged down trying to interpret what the symbols actually are.
So does anyone know what type of art/lettering/whatever this is? What they are saying? Why they have page numbers at the top? What the deal is with the apparently faked aging process?
