Hereby presenting an excerpt from With Brush and Pen … A Manual of the Newer and More Artistic Phases of Public School Art Instruction (1897) by James Hall. It tells the story of today’s Free Friday Vintage Coloring Page which is an illustration by the author. 

“If there is to be any measure of contentment in our country among the people who work with their hands, there must be developed something of the artist-artisan spirit of the middle ages, and the spirit of William Morris of our own day. Then shall be known what Ruskin calls the ‘joy of the workman,’ the joy which a creator feels in his own creation, wrought lovingly, conscientiously.”
