The Master of Fashion Illustration is an Amazing that is full of some Amazing work. It is a Fashion based book that shows the work of 5 Artists that are teeming with life, even today. She honors these Artists by hand drawing these images in their likeness. The Artists are George Wolfe Plank, George Barbier, Helen Dryden, Frank Leyendecker and Erte.
The images are from the Art Nouveau and Art Deco area which range from 1890 to 1930. The oldest date in the book is 1911. They are Delicate, Timeless and have a very Classic feel. I love images like these. Wendy usually does Mandalas so this is a “Out of the Box” experience for her but she has really done a beautiful job at it.
This book is 11″ x 8.5 ” and there are 30 images in this book. They are full of carefully drawn details. This is a book that everyone can color. None of them are so intricate that even a beginner can’t do them. My motto is that you set your own limits. I am not the best colorist but there is nothing in here that I would shy away from.
All of these pages have boarders around them which is great! It gives them a definite stopping point to each image and makes them easy to get out since these pages are not perforated. This is light weight paper so make sure to always put a couple sheets of paper, card stock or heavyweight paper under the page you’re working on so you don’t ruin the next image.
This is my 4th book of Wendy’s and although I am used to her Mandalas I absolutely love it. I love intricate work!! It helps me to focus and block out all the craziness around me! I have PTSD and I suffered for so long from symptoms like anxiety until a friend told me about coloring. As soon as I started I was hooked!!
Wendy has an AMAZING talent for drawing! This book is crying out for you to put color to the images. I am so happy I got it because I can put it with my Fashion collection. I have to say that out of my Fashion Coloring Books, that this is one of my favorites. I was lucky enough to receive Masters of Fashion Illustration in exchange for my HONEST and UNBIASED review.
