Silesian Folk Tales Coloring Book – Intricate Vintage Illustrations
This coloring book has been created with prints by C. F. Arcier from the classic book of folklore, Silesian Folk Tales (The Book of Rübezahl), first printed in 1915, by James Lee and James Thomas Carey. Create stunning hand-colored images of Rubezahl – the spirit prince who can make himself incredibly beautiful or hideously ugly – and the other characters in these classic tales. Illustrations are printed on every other page (leaving the back side of the page blank) so that colors do not interfere with other pictures. It is also recommended that you place an extra sheet of paper between the pages to prevent any bleed, then your completed work can be admired to perfection, or even cut out and framed. Because of their age the original illustrations have been restored to be suitable for coloring. Please keep in mind, however, there may still be imperfections. The illustrations depict scenes from tales that have their roots in Silesia, a region in Poland with a checkered history of possession by the Bohemian crown, the Austrian Habsburgs and Prussia. Silesian Folk Tales (The Book of Rübezahl) is in the Public Domain. A budding vintage artist inspiration!
