More About the Author

Marty is from a family of artists going back several generations. Raised in Santa Barbara, she pursued her creative interests from an early age, settling on the batik technique in the early 60's. From simple pieces the work grew into very detailed paintings earning her a reputation is area galleries as well as in the illustration field. In 1980 she switched to watercolor and pursued opportunities with art publishing firms and has since enjoyed seeing her designs used as book illustration, posters, puzzles, greeting cards, plate designs and calendars. Her primary focus in the last 15 years has been as an illustrator for Dover Publications where she has had 230 books published that include a series of coloring books of many of the famous painters and art movements as well as a variety of design and activity books for artists and children, Marty lives in Anna Maria Florida, where she finds continual inspiration for her current series of photo art prints. Her passion for photography and mastery of computer art programs have enabled her to marry the two in her recent print series depicting the natural beauty of southern Florida

Omg, this one is incredibly challenging...so much so it could probably take several months (or years depending on how often you color) to do every design in it. Some of the tapestries are so intricately detailed I have to keep my pencils sharpened to a fine point just to stay inside the lines.

Normally I don't like already inked in parts (fashions are a no no), but in this case, I'm actually grateful that a few of the design backgrounds are blackened in.

All in all an excellent adult style coloring book that will keep you occupied for many, many, MANY hrs. It's a great value considering how much time and effort it takes to do each design.

With informative dates and descriptions printed below each depiction, it's educational as well as fun.

Get your pencil sharpener ready (you'll need it!) and enjoy!

Adults who enjoy coloring will like this coloring book very much. It has some beautiful tapestries to color, and it gives historical information as well. I suppose that kids might enjoy it, but I doubt they'd truly appreciate the historical aspect of what they were coloring.

UPDATE: Apparently, coloring books for adults have come into vogue as "art therapy." Coloring is relaxing and can reduce stress. I could have told them that years ago! Keep on coloring people! 5/2015

As a history buff of what is often referred to as the Dark Ages, this Medieval Tapestries coloring book was a joy to find and to have. Marty Noble has done it again - provided adults with a quality coloring book full of images to color and to use as clip art, if desired. I am extremely pleased with the variety of tapestry selections and will enjoy using colored pencils in it as I recall that time period often forgot. The only minor negative is that the images are back-to-back, but luckily printed on quality thick paper.

This is definitely not your child's coloring book (or the coloring book you had as a child). From "Death on his Pale Horse" to "The Griffin Protects His Lady" there's something here for everyone, except maybe young children. It's a very detailed book. In fact if you have problems with your vision or hands -- you may want to pass. I have occasional hand troubles and will be skipping coloring in it on those days. It's also probably far too detailed for young children. Not to mention that death, unicorns in captivity, and Trojan war scenes may be a bit much for them (not that there's violence portrayed, there's not).

You'll want to break out colored pencils or very fine tipped markers for most of these. There are some rare areas that are wide open, but for the most part these are highly detailed pieces that will test your coloring skills.

An intro note in the book gives a brief history of tapestries and each page gives us the name / country of origin / year of the tapestry on the page we're coloring.

A must for older kids who are too old for traditional coloring books and adults who love to color.

The beauty of the pictures in this Dover Coloring Book will provide you with hours of relaxation, fun and a touch of history!

The paper is of good quality, the pictures are lovely -- this is what you can expect from Dover. You might even want to frame some of your finished creations.

I highly recommend this Medieval Tapestries Coloring Book for adults and teens.

This is a great coloring book for older children and adults. You need good, fine motor skills for this one, and colored pencils or markers are going to be best, though really sharp crayons might be adequate.

There are thirty different drawings of tapestries to color. At the bottom of each page it tells you the title or description of the tapestry, where it came from, and the year that it was completed. This is nice if you want to look for pictures of the real tapestries, or find out more about them.

The pictures are not much to look at when plain, but once they are colored in, they are quite stunning.

Bought this for my daughter, who is very creative. She is entranced with the tapestries and is even researching them on the internet! She is anxious to color them - either authentically, or in her own creative version. (I gave her Prisma colored pencils, as well) I had not realized these were authentic tapestries. How much more fun!!

I'm glad I purchased this tapestry coloring book for my daughter when we studied Medieval times. She enjoyed coloring the detailed tapestries and has since noticed the real tapestries every time we go to a museum.
