À propos du projet

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, 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.

Visit the FAQ if you’re wondering:  

  • What do you mean by “Adult” coloring book? 
  •  What quotes are included in the book? 
  •  Is the paper suitable for markers? ($12 level) 
  • What illustrations are on the greeting cards? ($25 level) 
  • Which original miniature sketch do I receive? ($40 level) 
  • How does the quote commission work? ($75 level) 
  • When do I get my rewards?

If you love this project, please share the campaign with your friends so She Coloured will meet its funding goal and become a reality! Your support and sharing is SO appreciated--I can’t do this without you, my fellow Austen fans!

Every day this month I'm drawing a new miniature sketch (available at the $40 reward level) and posting it on Instagram--come and see!

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

Risques et défis

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 a 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!

FAQ

  • This coloring book is totally kid-friendly! “Adult” simply means that some of the linework is more complex than a standard children’s coloring book so grown-up fans of Jane will enjoy coloring these pictures as much as children--or more, as you’ll have a deeper appreciation for the featured quotes!

    Last updated:
  • The paper can take colored pencils, markers, and even light watercolor washes without warping! (Some markers may bleed through to the other side; always test first!)

    Last updated:
  • There are 24 illustrated quotes in the book--four quotes from each of Jane Austen’s six major novels. You can visit my website for a full list of quotes and a preview of all 24 illustrations! The PDF and the printed book contain the same images.

    If your favorite quote isn’t included, remember that there is a reward level including an original illustration featuring a quote of your choice!

    Last updated:
  • The greeting cards feature twelve illustrations from the book (two from each novel). I chose illustrations that are easy to color even when scaled down to fit on the greeting cards. Visit my website for a full list of the quotes and illustrations included in the greeting card pack!

    Last updated:
  • Backers who have chosen the $40 tier will receive an original pen and ink miniature sketch!

    I’ll be drawing one sketch a day through the month of October and posting it on my Instagram account. Sketches will be sent out randomly, but if you have a preference let me know in the backer survey (“I like the sketch from day 16,”) and I will honor the request if possible!

    Last updated:
  • Backers who have chosen the $75 tier will receive an original illustration featuring a Jane Austen quote of their choice!

    Let me know what quote you would like illustrated (please keep the quote short--under 15 words is best). Drawing from the context of the quote, I will craft an original illustration just for you! The illustration will be in the same style as the rest of the coloring book.

    You will be sent the original ink on watercolor paper illustration to color or frame. The illustration will be 8” x 10” with a half-inch margin on all sides for a paper size of 9” x 11”.

    (Although you will receive the original, I reserve the right to use the illustration on my site or in future projects.)

    Last updated:
  • Soon after the campaign has ended I will send you a link to download the PDF book (EVERY backer will get a PDF).

    All of the files are ready to send to the printer as soon as the campaign ends. In my delivery estimate I have allowed three weeks to get things printed and shipped to me. Based on past experience with this printer I expect the books to arrive within that time!

    I will plan to pack and ship your rewards by the last week of November or the first week of December--and I’ll keep you updated on the process! All US orders should arrive in time for Christmas, and hopefully international orders, as well.
