Here’s a collection of beautiful hand-drawn vintage lifestyle portraits to color, featuring 42 antique illustrations of women from the early 1900s by artist Nell Brinkley.
The moment you open this book, you will be enchanted by this collection of classic illustrations of women, originally created by the talented artist Nell Brinkley between 1912 and 1919.
For years, Brinkley’s iconic black and white line art regularly appeared in newspapers across the United States. While her unique style made her a household name, most of the individual works were quickly relegated to dusty archives — and lost to later generations.
Enjoy a little modern-day relaxation and explore your creativity while giving these illustrations from the past a colorful new life!
Note: In keeping with the original designs, the pictures are often very intricate, and there are large areas of shading on certain pages. We chose not to over-simplify the artwork because of the tremendous amount of detail (and personality) that would be lost in the process. Please see below for thumbnails of the images.
