This marvellous colouring book, for children and adults alike, contains twenty-five magnificent illustrations selected from fine natural history books of the past. In the period from the mid-15th century, the finest natural history illustrations were printed in black and then coloured by hand. Now, for the first time, this handsome art is presented for colouring in its original form and not redrawn as in most colouring books.
These beautiful pictures are printed on one side of the sheet on special heavy paper for colouring in any medium. The pages are perforated so that the art can be removed and framed. To complete this stunning book, all twenty-five pictures are reproduced in their correct colouring, and an introduction gives their historical background and instructions for colouring.
