The Happy Hour Paint Book

This coloring book was published by Whitman in 1934 and the binding is falling apart. Fortunately, all of the pages are intact — although some of them are colored in, they are neatly done. I love so many of the illustrations in this book — there are lots of simple designs that are very unusual and I will share those later.

There are just a few pages of these grid pictures and I’ve never seen anything quite like them. The child was supposed to copy the drawing on the grid below the picture, which I think was a cool idea. I really like the designs — they would look cute stitched on even-weave fabric.
