Hereby presenting an excerpt from The Tin Woodman (1918) by L. Frank Baum. It tells the story of today’s Free Friday Vintage Coloring Page, an illustration by John R. Neill, in honor of the release of the second Patronage Coloring Book to benefit the children’s literacy charity Kids Need To Read

“Are you really a soldier?” asked Woot, when they had all watched this strange tin person parade up and down the path and proudly flourish his sword.

“I was a soldier,” wa the reply, “but I’ve been a prisoner to Mr. Rust so long that I don’t know exactly what I am.”

“But – dear me!” cried the Tin Woodman, sadly perplexed; “how came you to be made of tin?”

John R. Neill Patronage Vintage Coloring Book Vol. 2

John R. Neill Patronage Vintage Coloring Book, Vol. 2 Cover

Welcome to the second 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 John R. Neill was sourced from a 1918 edition of L. Frank Baum’s The Tin Woodman of Oz. This is the twelfth book in the Land of Oz series where the boy Woot does on an adventure with the Scarecrow, Tin Woodman, Tin Soldier, and Polychrome, the Rainbow’s Daughter. Ozma also makes an appearance to try and reverse the spell that turns Woot into a monkey.

In order to preserve the original proportions and to present double-page spreads as a single coloring page, some of the images are presented in a landscape format. 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 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.
