Clara Atwood Vintage Coloring Book coverToday marks the release of the third Vintage Coloring adult coloring book, The Art of Clara E. Atwood, Volume 1. This adult coloring book features illustrations from the collection, A Book of Nursery Rhymes.

[And There Was Much Rejoicing (yaaaaaaaay!)]

You may purchase the adult coloring book on Amazon and all of the pages within are revealed  here on our website.

If you’d like to try out Clara’s illustration style, you can download a free coloring page from our Free Coloring Page Friday collection.

Filled with children and parents and old women with pigs and flying geese, Clara’s endearing artwork represents childhood with elegant lines and often minimal backgrounds.

There are 20 unique full, page designs and 20 postcards-sided (4″ x 6″) images of close-ups from those original illustrations. Every page is single sided and the 60 lb. paper is excellent for colored pencils. There are also several blank pages at the end of the book so you may try out the coloring implement of your choice and practice coloring combinations.

Vintage Coloring will be releasing an adult coloring book once a month showcasing various artists from the late nineteenth century through the early twentieth century. We look forward to sharing this beautiful bygone art with you.

Clara Atwood Vintage Coloring Book cover

Clara E. Atwood was an American artist born in 1874. She primarily illustrated children’s stories such as The Bunnikins-Bunnies in Camp and Nibbles Poppelty-Poppett.

In this first volume of Clara’s work, all of the images come from a collection of A Book of Nursery Rhymes.

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. 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.

–  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.
