The Middle Ages
The Middle Ages
    Pictures selected by Edmund V. Gillon, Jr.

The pictures in this coloring book are real illustrations from books published during the late Middle Ages from 1475 to 1500. Included are a knight swallowed by a monster, scenes from the Bible, battles and combats, Jerusalem, agricultural activities, animals, and much more. Over 50 illustrations.

The ideas and style of drawing in these pictures show how the people of the Middle Ages saw the world around them, and even how they imagined the world of the Bible and the old Greek and Roman heroes.

Bright and lively colors were very important in the life of the Middle Ages. At that time, pictures in books were not yet printed in color, so the people who bought them usually painted them or had an artist paint them. So when you color the pictures in this book, you will be doing exactly what the people in the Middle Ages did. The only difference is that the pictures have been enlarged.
