A coloring book that celebrates the beauty and accomplishments of the Ethnically European creators using the Victorian, Italliante, Germanic and Gothic ...
... design and elements in our European homes. Art is showcasing the influence of the Victorian era by A. G. Smith. The Victorian era was a period of profound social change and many of these upheavals were reflected in the building styles of the time. Styles of architecture of this period - created for the more affluent and spread by imitation by the rapidly expanding middle class of ethnic Europeans - were characterized by a romantic impulse. The detailed renderings to color illustrate many distinctive Victorian styles and often elaborate embellishments. From the formal evolution of the Victorian home to the earliest Gothic Revival structures of the 1830s and 40s to the grandes 'cottages' of the Gilded Age. This coloring book is published by Creative Haven and has one sided and perforated pages which is appreciated along with the title written on the spine for easy filing. each. At the end of this post, I have included vlog show throughs for a mosey. All opinions are my own and this is not a paid presentation. From the chapter 'Art & Coloring Books'
