Hereby presenting an excerpt from The Craftsman magazine (April, 1902). It tells the story of today’s Free Friday Vintage Coloring Page which is one of the designs on John Ruskin’s grave (the Ruskin Cross at Coniston).

“The shaft, in these old monuments, is often carved with allusions to human life; the head with divine symbols. So here the patterns on the shaft form a kind of short pictorial biography, beginning at the bottom on the east, and going round with the sun.

The young Ruskin began as a poet, and attained some distinction as a verse-writer in magazines before ever he found his vocation as a writer of prose. Here under the arch at the foot of the stone is a young singer with his lyre and laurels, somewhat classical and not very passionately
inspired.”

“When Lydia appeared in the doorway, the smokers, tilted back comfortably in large, rush-bottomed chairs, were well advanced in enjoyment of the weed. Each had a clay pipe with a long reed stem, and the atmosphere was thick with smoke from fragrant tobacco grown on the estate. Lydia waited, mischievously, for the anathema Uncle Josias would be swift to pronounce, but the old fellow merely grunted and gave a longer pull at his pipe.”
