Everyday Dress of the American Colonial Period Coloring Book (Dover Fashion Coloring Book) Reviews
This "coloring book" is a nice illustration of our early American time period. Quite a few costumes offer a clear treatment of the different trades and social classes of our founding fathers. I recommend photocopying each page (for your own use, that is) so that kids can color them repeatedly.
Wonderful coloring book that not only gives you something to color, but the captions at the bottom teach a lot as well. Could be used for children very well. Any of these historic fashion books give a lot of information.
This is an early book by the late Peter Copeland. His style was sharp and contained a bit of humor. This is one of my favorites of the 18th Century clothing series. Buy 2 copies. One for the kids and one for yourself!
I was hoping for more images of ladies clothing to assist me in sewing doll clothes. But this is still a useful and fascinating book
Another winner, this one adds humor into the pictures as well. Mr. Copeland adds hilarity into history with his comic stories of the jobs the colonists as they went about their lives. It makes you want to read each page and eager to read the next. Relaxing therapy as well as lively reading.
I was looking for some pictures to use with my genealogy. The pictures were nice. I had fun coloring them with colored pencils before scanning them.
For fans of fashion and history, this Dover Publication provides hours of educational entertainment with almost fifty drawings that accurately depict clothing of the American Revolution. Every social level is presented here, including trades people, gentry and an Indian Chief!
