About the Author

Cicely Mary Barker --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

More About the Author

Cicely Mary Barker was born in 1895 in Croydon, South London, and spent most of her life there. Because of ill-health she was educated at home and largely taught herself to draw and paint, encouraged by a supportive family and assisted by membership of the Croydon Art Society. She was only sixteen when she had her first work accepted for publication as a set of postcards, and from that time she devoted her career to painting. It was her Flower Fairies books that brought Cicely Mary Barker her greatest popular acclaim. Like the Pre-Raphaelite painters whom she so much admired, she believed in recreating the beauty of nature in art and in drawing from life. Her plants and flowers were observed with complete botanical accuracy and in the fairies themselves she captured perfectly the unselfconscious grace of children, whom she used to sketch in her sister's school.

What a find for lovers of fairies! Barker's drawings are the sweetest, most whimsical of all. The flowers are accurately drawn and the fairies enchanting. My daughter and I both adore this book. Caution though - don't use markers, as they will bleed through the pages. A wonderful gift for any girl at a terrific price.

I have a large collection of these dover adult coloring books. I must das these illustrations are darling. Being an adult I still can enjoy some fantasy in my life.

I recommend these for relaxation. I find that Primsacolor colored pencils work the best for shading and making wonderful creative creations.

Highly recommend these books. Amazon had a HUGE collection and the 4 for 3 deal cannot be beat. There are themes just about for any taste.

Wahy cheaper than counceling and much more fun. LOL

I purchased 2 one for me and one for my granddaughter she loved it as did I. We are going to be using colored pencils, she has been using them with me since she was 2yr old , she is now 10 yr old and we color together when I have her. I am disabled so coloring is one thing we do together. If your girls any age like faries they will love this book .

ILLUSTRTED ART AWAITING CREATIVE COLORING: This is a book with wonderful illustrations whose art not only grabs the attention of children but adults as well.

I like this coloring book because it not only grabs the child's attention, but it provides opportunity for the child to see the beauty that is found in form which is simply expressed, while enabling a child see how color accentuates beauty: the beauty that is found in the form. A plus is that it inspires an adult to participate in the child's creative and artistic growth and maturity... A great book for helping all children grow in artistic awarnesss but in a simple way that doesn't overwhelm them... it is a treasure... jack O'Dell

I am not much on coloring books and would rather give a child a blank piece of paper and tell them to "create." But this coloring book is so much more. Full of magical fairies and pictures originally created by Cicely Mary Baker, this book helps children imagine the world of fairies. Lovely!
