I would recommend this book to anyone interested in teaching cildren about the fashions & life from this time period! Full of information about the clothing & typical village life.
I do have a couple of complaints: too much black ink on some pages - pictures are back to back. I would have welcomed more info on color choices that would have been available during that period.
For the price, Dover Publications has done a wonderful job putting together Mr. Tierney's work. I do recommend his other collections, but would attempt to copy onto a better grade of paper. I say attempt because the image on the reverse will ghost through.
Recommended mediums would be crayon, colored pencils, & chalk pastels. All wet mediums will bleed through the pages.
All pages are non-perforated & double sided. The pages can be removed from the book with an utility or exacto knife for ease of placing in a binder.
This is a typical Dover Publication coloring book & the drawings deserve much better paper.
