#43 Self Portraits of Women Artists Colouring Book

Regular price $7.50 $0.00 Unit price per
Each book starts from a visual theme based in Art History, usually chosen based around one artwork I really love. After thorough research and image collection, I create freehand pen drawings of the images I've collected. I also hand write each title and artist label on the many pages (A labor of love). After scanning the drawings, and making minimal edits, I layout the pages based on visual cohesiveness as opposed to chronological order. 
One of the pages (or a combination of pages) is used for the cover. I add color and title information, and after doing some test printouts at home to look for typos and mistakes, the book is finished!
I then send a digital copy to her small printer in Pennsylvania, ordering small batches of 50 at a time. Upon receiving the printed books (after admiring the fully finished book), each book slides into a compostable plastic sleeve and I hand deliver or ship them to the many stockists around the city and country!
Self Portraits for Women: 

This coloring book features Self Portraits by a diverse selection of Women artists dating from the 16 - 21 centuries.

I felt this book to be a more personal journey; As a woman artist myself, it was inspiring find this assortment of Self Portraits throughout such a large spectrum of time. This project was really fun to research and I discovered many artists whose work I greatly admire! I hope you will have fun coloring in these inspiring women.
