Hello! I’m Amanda Kastner, an illustrator, book collector, and fan of Jane Austen's wonderful, witty novels. This coloring book project combines my love of illustration and my love of Jane Austen in 24 illustrated quotes just waiting for some color from you, my fellow Austen fan!
Every illustration is hand drawn in ink, then scanned and prepared for printing. As I designed the coloring pages I re-read passages of the novels and drew inspiration from the context of the quote. You can visit my website for a full list of quotes and a preview of all 24 illustrations.
I love putting art on my walls, and I hope you do, too! She Coloured is designed with more than the coloring experience in mind--each 8" x 10" illustration is printed on paper sturdy enough to display with or without a frame.
In addition to the coloring book, you can choose to receive colorable greeting cards, a mini print, or even an original sketch or quote illustration--and every reward level includes the full PDF coloring book for unlimited coloring fun!
Three printable illustrations from She Coloured are available for free on Gumroad. If you enjoy the sample pages, you'll love the full coloring book!
Shipping is included for all backers in the USA! (International backers, I tried to figure out the cheapest and most convenient shipping option--I'm sorry postage is still so high!)
If you would like extra books (bound or loose-leaf), greeting cards, or mini prints, just increase the amount of your pledge by the amount shown above. After the campaign ends I’ll send you a survey so you can let me know what the extra funds are for.
When you pledge money by choosing one of the reward levels, you are basically pre-buying the book and helping me cover the initial printing costs--it’s a good deal for both of us!
(Your card is not charged until the campaign has finished successfully. If the funding goal is not reached, you will not be charged.)
The money from this campaign will be used to cover the expenses of Kickstarter fees, printing of books and other rewards, and shipping costs.

What would Jane’s characters think of coloring books? I imagine Mrs. Elton would say something like this:

Risks and challenges
All of the artwork for the book is complete. As soon as the campaign ends, the files will be sent to the printer!
There is always the possibility of printing problems or other delays, but I have worked with this printer in the past and have been happy with their quality and turnaround time.
Although this is my first Kickstarter, I run an online business so I’m familiar with the shipping process. I will do my very best to ship by early December and I promise to keep you updated on the progress!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
