Hereby presenting an excerpt from The Story of a Candy Rabbit (1920) by Laura Lee Hope. It tells the story of today’s Free Friday Vintage Coloring Page which is an illustration by Harry L. Smith.

Feeling rather lonesome, the Rabbit looked for some one to whom he might talk. He saw cakes of soap, towels, and wash cloths. There was also a large sponge in a wire basket hanging over the edge of the bathtub.

“I have heard that sponges are animals,” said the Candy Rabbit. “I wonder if this one is alive and will speak to me. I’ll try. Hello there, Mr. Sponge!” he called.

Hereby presenting an excerpt from The Hollow Tree and Deep Woods Book (1900) by Albert Bigelow Paine. It tells the story of today’s Free Friday Vintage Coloring Page which is an illustration by J. M. Conde.

“Well, the Hollow Tree people had never heard of Santa Claus. They knew about Christmas, of course, because everybody, even the cows and sheep, know about that; but they had never heard of Santa Claus. You see, Santa Claus only comes to Mr. Man’s house, but they didn’t know that, either, so they
thought if they just hung up their stockings he’d come there, too, and that’s what they made up their minds to do. They talked about it a great deal together, and Mr. ‘Possum looked over all his stockings to pick out the biggest one he had, and Mr. Crow he made himself a new pair on purpose.”

Percy Billinghurst Vintage Coloring Book, Volume 1

Percy Billinghurst Volume 1 Vintage Coloring Book Cover

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.

Buy Vintage Coloring books at Amazon

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.
