Pride and Prejudice tells us the desperately romantic tale of headstrong Elizabeth Bennett and haughty Mr Darcy, surely one of the best love stories of all time. This colouring book features key characters and scenes from the book with accompanying quotes, alongside lots of pretty flora and fauna as a nod to the sprawling gardens and grounds described in the original tale. These flowers are all named in a glossary at the back of the book which tells you the meaning of each species and why they relate to the story.
This book also features a glossary- or rather, 'Apothecary's Shelf'- of the flowers illustrated throughout the pages, such as the Deadly Nightshade Juliet consumed for a deep sleep, and Monkshood which ultimately finished Romeo off.
The covers are a thick cardstock and completely colourable, with 3/4 sized dust flaps to the front and rear. There is beautiful gold and bronze coloured foiling to the title and details of P&P and R&J respectively, giving the books a real look of opulence and luxury depicted in the stories.
Here are my finished pages from both books.
