Percy James Billinghurst was a painter, illustrator and bookplate designer who lived from 1871-1933. He created over two hundred illustrations for books of anecdotes and fables.
In this first volume of Percy’s work, all of the images come from a collection of A Hundred Fables of La Fontaine.
The following images are all of the pages included in this vintage adult coloring book:
– Twenty full page (8.5″ x 11″) illustrations, one per page
– Twenty 4” x 6” images, two per page
The last few pages of the coloring book are intentionally left blank so you have a place to try out the coloring implements of your choice.
Due to the thickness of the paper, colored pencils are recommended. Markers may be used, and even though the images are printed single-sided, a sheet of cardstock or a few pieces of copy paper under the page you are coloring is useful to prevent possible bleed-through onto the next illustration.
