Color Your Own Historic Sailor

Back in 2017, my colleague Ben Bartgis shared an April Fool's Day post over at Napoleonic Tars: 1790-1820.

The reaction was so positive that Ben decided to make it a real thing and asked for my help. To celebrate the Glorious First of June, we are releasing this coloring book for free as a PDF. Just follow the link here to get your copy.

Included are eight black and white or decolorized original images of sailors stretching from the 1740's through the 1810's, documenting the change in mariners' fashions over that tumultuous period. 

Download and print your copy, break out your preferred coloring instruments, and spend some time with us to Color Your Own Historic Sailor!
