Vintage Coloring Pages

It can be a bit of a challenge to find great coloring pages. Many of the ones being shared online are far from being in the public domain. I suspect folks are just scanning their own coloring books and putting the images online. I guess they’re hoping that the generic, cheapo coloring book they found at the Dollar Store doesn’t have a publisher who will sue them.

Additionally, many of the great vintage children’s books were designed for the children to color in the images. That means, the few that have survived the years are often painted, crayoned or otherwise colored in already. I can often find little bits and pieces of things that could be colorized to your liking but finding full or half-page images that would work for coloring is a challenge.

OK, a lot of words to say that I wish I had more great coloring images to share with you. I did snag a pretty little vintage coloring book in my travels and hope to get the pages scanned in soon for you to enjoy. Until then, I do hope you enjoy the lovely coloring pages that I’ve found so far.
