Dover Coloring Book

Text Box with description of Book

Another of Tom Tierney's wonderful fashion coloring books, this one is only 30 pages (many of his coloring books are more). It also doesn’t have the usual accessory pages, but I guess hats and shoes weren't quite as odd here as they were in the Medieval era, for instance. And as we have all come to expect from such an expert, each costume is meticulous in detail, with hints for coloring authentically. Most pages include a male wearing a military uniform, but there are also pages with mothers and children, and plain wear for men. In all, a nice variety and lots of fun to color. I have chosen pages to represent a cross-section of what is illustrated in this book. Enjoy!
