Enter the elegant world of mid-Victorian fashions with the help of this unique coloring book. Artist Tom Tierney, widely recognized for his stunning paper doll collections, turns his talents to a new medium and spotlights the stylish clothing worn by well-to-do Americans in the Civil War era.
Forty-five meticulously researched and finely rendered illustrations depict men, women, and children in wardrobes that take them through their day—from attractive outfits for at-home wear to elegant evening dresses for special occasions. Handsome military outfits worn by Union and Confederate officers are the rule for the men of the period, while most fashions for youngsters mirror adult styles. Center-stage are the lovely garments worn by the ladies: taffeta and silk walking dresses edged with bands of ribbon; elaborate, tassel-trimmed carriage cloaks; exquisite off-the-shoulder ball gowns enhanced with floral accents, and much more. Brief, informative captions describe the style and fabric of the apparel depicted, offering helpful suggestions for colorists who want to lend a touch of historical accuracy to their finished products.
Adapted from the pages of such vintage fashion publications as Harper's Bazar and Godey's Lady's Book, these painstakingly executed drawings will thrill coloring book fans of all ages, serve as inspiration to costume designers, and make excellent references for fashion historians.
