Hereby presenting an excerpt from the entry “Find the Favorite” from The Book of Joyous Children (1902) by James Whitcomb Riley. It tells the story of today’s Free Friday Vintage Coloring Page which is an illustration by J. W. Vawter.

“Mowgli’s all his name—the same
Me an’ Muvver took
Like the Wolf-Child’s other name.
In ‘The Jungul Book.’

I bet Mowgli’s the smartest cat
In the world!—He ‘s not
White, but mousy-plush, with that
Smoky gloss he’s got!”

Edna F. Hart Vintage Coloring Book, Vol. 1

Edna F. Hart Vintage Coloring Book Cover

Edna F. Hart illustrated two collections of Hans Christian Andersen fairy tales and this Vintage Coloring book contains images from the first book which was published in 1914.

Classics stories such as The Little Match Girl, The Snow Queen,  Thumbelina, and The Ugly Duckling are represented, as well as scenes from The Fir Tree, Little Tuk, Little Ida’s Flowers, and more.

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.
