Color Me Jane

We rated this book:


More coloring books for adults should be like this one — refined, detailed, and literary. This one is an artistic homage to the literary giant Jane Austen. It is full of gorgeous Georgian fashion, dressing the famous characters from Austen’s books. Each page is rich in detail and intricate embellishment, like flowers and greenery that surround and fill the borders. Scenes from the books transport you through time; for example, a horse and carriage fly in front of an old stone wall with a manor house in the background. And in another, Elizabeth Bennett can be seen walking over the fields in the rain. Other pages contain quotations from the books for you to color (several of these are repeated in pull-out pages for you to frame and hang) or collections of hats, china, food, or furniture. This book visually immerses you in Austen’s world and perfectly captures the elegance and drama of the age. This book recalls your favorite Austen scenes, reminding you why you love the stories in the first place, and is a perfect accompaniment to your favorite Austen novels.
