Vintage Coloring Book Covers

These books were part of a big lot of coloring books I purchased thinking they might have some cute drawings for embroidery. Some of the them did, but unfortunately the pages in these three were not that cute. As is the case with many of these vintage coloring books, the illustrator of the cover and the illustrator of the inside pages are different artists. I’m not complaining, though, because I love the covers. The books are large (10″ x 15″ and 11″ x 14″) and the illustrations are so fabulous, I think I’ll just frame them.
