Unexpected Pre-Raphaelite Siting: La Ghirlandata in a coloring book

I love this.  Via the Pre-Raphaelite Sisterhood Facebook page, Rosemary Aquilina shared her brilliant discovery of a coloring book version of Dante Gabriel Rossetti’s La Ghirlandata:
Rosemary says “I spotted La Ghirlandata in my little sister’s coloring book! I was flipping through many pages of this:”


“when THIS stopped me in my tracks!”

It is obviously an adaptation of La Ghirlandata! I’d love to know who illustrated the coloring book.

  1. WOW — wouldn’t it be cool to have a coloring book for children based exclusively on the work of the PRB? It would really be educational and far better than coloring Barney. 🙂
