W. W. Denslow Patronage Vintage Coloring Book, Vol. 1

Wizard of Oz - Patronage Vintage Coloring Book cover

Welcome to the third patronage Vintage Coloring book! Part of the proceeds from the sale of this book will be donated to the children’s literacy charity Kids Need To Read on a monthly basis. For more information, please see the Patreon project run by Curator Prime that supports the creation of these patronage Vintage Coloring books (for there will be more!).

The art in this volume by William Wallace Denslow was sourced from three different editions of L. Frank Baum’s The Wizard of Oz, as later editions had additional artwork. This was the first book in the Land of Oz series where Dorothy from Kansas is transported to Oz by a cyclone (Baum’s word when describing the tornado). Once there, she befriends the Scarecrow, the Tin Woodman, and the Cowardly Lion on her was to the Emerald City to see the Wizard in hopes of getting back home.

All images are printed single-sided.

The following images are all of the pages included in this patronage vintage adult coloring book (the website URLs are only on these images; they are not printed on the pages in the book):

– Twenty-five full page (8.5″ x 11″) illustrations, one per page. While some images appear smaller than others in the gallery below, all illustrations are of a full page size; most presented vertically, some presented horizontally.

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.
