This book is great, I love it!

In fact it contains 9 paper dolls, since King Henry VIII is shown in different ages. All other queens than Catherine Parr have at least one extra gown. There are several armours for the King. Garments are really detailed, clear and well drawn. Some of the details are actually so tiny, that it would be almost impossible to color them.

Since I want to enjoy this lovely book for many coming years, I have taken copies. If you zoom each page 135% and copy it on A3 sheet you will easily have even more magnificient paperdolls and your pencils can reach the exquisite details of gowns and jewels.

I recommend this coloring book highly for every fashion history enthusiast, recreator, renaissance lover or advanced colorist. I guess it will become one of your treasures!

When I saw the paintings of the various Tudors in history books, most of the time the color jobs were so poor you could not see any detail of the clothing. Now, with these wonderful line drawings, you can not only get an idea of what the clothing looked like, but you can color them yourself. Plus, the synopsis of each person's life history sums up the most interesting aspects of that person's life without getting judgemental or too risque for children.

I found the book witty and informative and so many levels. THere are very few instances in which I can extrapolate so much from a coloring expeirience. I would highly recoomend this book to anyone with a masters or higher in the areas of coloring or bookdrawing genres.

A coloring plus paper doll book, showing King Henry in his younger years, and 6 of his wives. The gowns are beautifully illustrated, with rich details, very intricate, and a brief history of the king, and his wives. Being familar with Bellaphron books, I got exactly what I was expecting, and hoping for. With this book out of print, you are fortunate to find new copies, without paying more than 30.00. I love the Tudor period, I love paper dolls, and I love to color!, so this was the perfect book for me. I've been building up my Bellaphron coloring book collection, while I can still find some of these out of print books, before they are no longer available. Sorry to say, but I don't think these paticular books are for children, unless your using these in a learning capacity. When I think of Bellaphron coloring books, I think of 'adult' coloring/ educational book. A very good find!!

This is my original book that I lost in Chicago in 1978! How awesome. It is in it's original condition with a newer cover. The price was great and if I had known it was my book I would have paid more.

Thank you!
