Coloring is an activity usually associated with children, as adults opt for stylus, highlighters and other high-end instruments over crayons and color pencils these days. However Vogue intends to bring the art of coloring back in vogue with the debut of the Vogue Colouring Book.
Coloring is considered to be beneficial for adults with therapeutic benefits. And it just gets better with decorating illustrations straight from the Vogue archive.
Created by award-winning writer, fashion editor, curator and Royal College of Art Professor, Iain R Webb, The Vogue Colouring Book is due for release this November.
The book is being published just ahead of British Vogue’s centenary celebrations in 2016.
It will feature hand-drawn designs inspired by the fashion pages of the magazine during the Fifties, including depictions of ball gowns and cocktail dresses from Christian Dior, Balenciaga, Givenchy and Chanel.
It is a must-have for those who crave to add a personalized creative touch to the time-honored fashion trends and re-imagine them in their own unique editions. Iain R.Webb also urges, “Now is your chance to be the designer.” The coloring book makes a perfect present for all those who love vintage fashion.
The high-on-fashion book will also feature style tips taken from the original pages of Vogue, adding a nostalgic and occasionally amusing insight into the fashion trends of the time.
Readers can showcase their unique cover art designs and compare them with others on social media platform. The Vogue Colouring Book will published by Conran Octopus on November 5 at $15.
