This is not a typical coloring book! It features authentic vintage images that were drawn nearly a century ago.

Here's a collection of beautiful hand-drawn vintage lifestyle portraits to color, featuring 42 antique illustrations of women from the early 1900s by artist Nell Brinkley.

The moment you open this book, you will be enchanted by this collection of classic illustrations of women, originally created by the talented artist Nell Brinkley between 1912 and 1919.

For years, Brinkley's iconic black and white line art regularly appeared in newspapers across the United States. While her unique style made her a household name, most of the individual works were quickly relegated to dusty archives -- and lost to later generations.

Until now. Inside, you'll find dozens of her lifestyle portraits of women that we rediscovered and made into coloring pages. Every one of the 42 vintage images in this book was carefully chosen, then painstakingly restored by hand using digital technology in order to return it to its original glory.

As a bonus, each highly-detailed antique picture is printed only on one side of the white paper, allowing you to color with your choice of medium without worrying about bleed-through to an image on the back.

Enjoy a little modern-day relaxation and explore your creativity while giving these illustrations from the past a colorful new life!

Note: In keeping with the original designs, the pictures are often very intricate, and there are large areas of black on certain pages. We chose not to over-simplify the artwork because of the tremendous amount of detail (and personality) that would be lost in the process. Please visit the publisher's site at Synchronista.com to view thumbnails of the illustrations in this book.

From the Author:

More than a century ago, a young artist named Nell Brinkley picked up a pen, and drew her way into history.

In contrast to the staid, serene "Gibson Girls" that had been popular for many years, Brinkley's illustrations were a breath of fresh air. The women she depicted were vibrant and vivacious, relatable and real, independent and inspiring -- and were embraced by the public almost immediately.

While her most common theme was the pursuit of love -- with wistful and playful overtones by turn -- she also portrayed motherhood, recreational pastimes, daily life... with the occasional fanciful departure.

The collection in this book focuses primarily on the on the everyday girls and women she so gracefully depicted, and showcases more than three dozen of Brinkley's works created between 1912 and 1919.

Not just something new for you to color, these illustrations capture moments in time, and as such, offer tiny glimpses into life a hundred years ago  -- moments that had been forgotten for decades. Every page offers something different -- and maybe even a little bit magical, and will make for beautiful keepsakes to frame or share.

Book Description Synchronista LLC, United States, 2015. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Here s a collection of beautiful hand-drawn vintage lifestyle portraits to color, featuring 42 antique illustrations of women from the early 1900s by artist Nell Brinkley. The moment you open this book, you will be enchanted by this collection of classic illustrations of women, originally created by the talented artist Nell Brinkley between 1912 and 1919.

Enjoy a little modern-day relaxation and explore your creativity while giving these illustrations from the past a colorful new life! Important notes: Every one of the antique images in this book was carefully chosen, then painstakingly restored by hand using modern technology in order to return it to its original glory as much as possible. Although these pictures were not created with colored pens, pencils, crayons or paints in mind, we reviewed hundreds of drawings to select those most suited to the task. Still, due to the authentic vintage nature of the artwork, this isn t a typical adult coloring book of modern images with pristine lines. The images were restored as faithfully as possible, but since the original artwork is not known to exist, we relied upon high-resolution scans of the printed newspaper pages. As such, some details have been lost due to printing processes and quality of preserved newsprint. In addition, in keeping with the original designs, you will also see: The pictures are often very intricate; There are large areas of black on certain pages; There s an overall sketch-like quality on some illustrations, particularly near the edges; We chose not to over-simplify the artwork because of the tremendous amount of detail (and personality) that would be lost in the process.
