Book Introduction:

Open this book and you'll soon find yourself immersed in the wonderful gingerbread world of Victorian architecture and interior design. From a nostalgic introduction by John Philip Sousa III to the charming original illustrations of Daniel Lewis, The Victorian House Coloring Book invites children and colorists to re-create the furnishings, color schemes, and rich decorations of a lovely Victorian home.Comprising a complete household tour, these beautifully authentic illustrations depict the exterior, attic, front hallway, parlor, library, dining room, kitchen, three bedrooms, bathroom (including a water closet), and basement. In addition, a delightful double-page spread shows the garden with a gazebo.Typical of Victorian-era house, which often combined several architectural styles, the house shown here blends a simple Italianate exterior with such Second Empire features as a mansard roof and dormer windows. Other styles often featured in such homes include Queen Anne and Romanesque revivals, Carpenter Gothic and Stick, and Eastlake.A well-researched and informative text by Kristin Helberg accompanies each illustration, commenting on furnishings and architectural details and providing insight into the historical background and everyday life of the era. Dollhouse buffs, who consistently prefer the Victorian style to all others, will welcome this handsome book, while designers and illustrators will be especially pleased that all the illustrations are royalty free.
