This is a sumptuous coloring book in the Art Nouveau style from Dover's Creative Haven® imprint. It features 31 beautiful designs by Mary Noble, reminiscent of Art Nouveau masters like Mucha and Verneuil. This book will bring you hours of pleasure as you fill in the imaginative patterns of stylized animals. The images include peacocks, butterflies, parrots and swans, frolicking among vines, flowers and fruit.
The Art Nouveau ("New Art") movement strove to make art accessible and a part of every day life. It typically included patterns with natural elements (animals, birds, flowers and plants) and frequently made use of bold colors. So don't be afraid to get expressive when coloring these delightful pages.
The designs are full of movement and the patterns use mirroring, repetition and sequencing to draw you in. They awaken your creative mind and get the imaginative juices flowing. As the colors bring the images to life, the process becomes both exciting and relaxing with a true sense of satisfaction.
Like other Creative Haven books, it is thoughtfully produced, with perforated, single-sided pages. You're bound to end up with some wonderful results with from this book; it will be easy to detach your favorites for framing. (Don't forget to share them with us here on our gallery page, too!)
