What is the "Gilded Age" and "The Teensies" you ask? The Gilded Age was the 1870's and The Teensies are the 2010's! Each decade commonly is assigned a nickname that becomes representative of the era.
The ones we hear most often are "The Roaring Twenties" and "The Swinging Sixties". This coloring book is a glimpse into each time period through the lens of womens' hairstyle, fashion, style and some of the innovations of the time – like radios, telephones, cd players, all the way to smartphones.
It was impossible to fit all that I wanted to include for each page so I made them facing pages. Each decade has a border style that is reflective of design style for the time period along with iconic handbags, earrings, glasses, hair accessories, perfume bottles or make-up. Not each pages is perfectly consistent with what is included because the importance of certain items faded through time. To fully reflect the flavor of the decade I thought it was fun to include some slang phrases and little design elements that would have been similar to what you see on products.
I hope that this book is a gas to color (ha, ha)! A little google search can give you an easy way to find a palette that works for each decade and adds an extra layer of fun to the coloring!
Happy Coloring, Friends!
