Vintage Coloring Book Illustrators

Vintage coloring booksChildren’s vintage coloring books have wonderful cover art. I love the coloring books from the 1920s and 1930s. They reflect the Art Deco style that could be found in art, furniture, fashion, typography, and so many other areas. Some of my favorite children’s illustrators during this time period were Fern Peat, Peter Mabie, Jan Cragin and Corinne Ringle. Finding coloring books in good to very good condition is not an easy task. If the cover art is in good shape, I do not mind if the pages have been colored. I am currently working on digitally restoring a wonderful ABC book by Corinne Ringle.  Download a cover sample of “My Circus” by Jan Cragin below.
