Airplanes of the Second World War Coloring Book

Descriere: During World War II, armed aircraft became more deadly and sophisticated as the Allied and Axis powers struggled for supremacy. Fighters, bombers, reconnaissance planes, and transports were rapidly developed by both sides and sent into the conflict. The technology changed so quickly that some highly effective planes used early on were outmoded before the end of the war.
Now Carlo Demand, internationally known graphic artist, has rendered 46 planes of World War II especially for coloring. Among them, the "Enola Gay," the Japanese Zero used by kamikaze pilots, the German Komet jet fighter, and the spunky British spitfire that performed so valiantly in the Battle of Britain.
Colorists will find detailed information in captions concerning authentic coloring, markings, and insignia, as well as information about design innovations, each plane's military role and affiliation, and other pertinent data. The illustrations are accurate and authentic, and as part of the Dover Pictorial Archive Series, may be used royalty-free. Thirteen of the planes are shown in full color on the covers.
All of the planes pictured here are now, of course, obsolete; but for aviation buffs, military historians, model builders, and illustrators, these superb renderings will recall an era a time when the needs of a global conflict spurred tremendous advances in aerial technology, both military and commercial."

Tudor and Elizabethan Fashions

Spanning over a century of English history, the Tudor dynasty witnessed the steady growth and development of commerce between England and the European continent. One of the ways the resulting prosperity manifested itself was in the fashions worn by English monarchs and the growing middle class. That clothing is documented in this new addition to Dover's popular coloring book series on the history of fashion. Encompassing clothing dating from the late fifteenth century to the early 1600s, 45 plates of accurate, ready-to-color illustrations depict apparel worn by a broad spectrum of English society -- from country workers in woolen tunics and leather boots and sailors in canvas breeches and shirts to officials in fur-trimmed robes and elegantly clad Tudor monarchs such as Henry VIII and his daughter, Elizabeth I. Also shown are numerous period hairstyles, headgear, shoes, gloves, jewelry, and other fashion accessories. Accompanied by a fact-filled Introduction and identifying captions, these handsome, carefully researched and meticulously rendered illustrations will delight costume historians, fashion designers, and coloring book fans of all ages.

Pret: 39,00 RON

Peter Copeland, Cynthia Copeland

From Antietam to Gettysburg: A Civil War Coloring Book

One of the crucial phases of the Civil War centered on the two Confederate invasions of the North undertaken by Robert E. Lee's Army of Northern Virginia. The first invasion ended at the battle of Antietam (Sharpsburg), fought on September 17, 1862. The second came to a halt at the decisive battle of Gettysburg (July 1-3, 1863), after which the Confederate forces retreated into Virginia. This unique coloring book focuses on the two campaigns, allowing colorists to bring their own sense of color and design to various aspects of the momentous struggle. Noted illustrator Peter Copeland has provided 45 precise black-and-white illustrations, based on extensive research, that document the great clash of armies: cavalry charges, raids, counterattacks, artillery barrages, ruined cities and devastated countryside, tending the sick and wounded, quiet moments in camp, and more. Civil War buffs, colorists, and students of American history will appreciate the accuracy and drama of these illustrations, which offer not only an enjoyable coloring experience but an attractive and valuable learning tool for anyone seeking a deeper understanding of the nation's past.
