Adult coloring books are the thing, now days. So if you enjoy late eighteenth and early nineteen century reads, this coloring book is for you! The drawings and various poses are nice, and I love the little dates and descriptions the author provides. I even use it for research on my historical fiction novels. Thanks, Tom!
