I’m very excited with my new coloring book I’ve put together for adults. “Detailed Alphabet Coloring Book: 25 Baroque Grayscale Images.

25 Grayscale alphabet letters for your coloring pleasure. Intricate, detailed, stunning, created circa 1650 in the Baroque era!
These images are in the public domain and sourced from Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam
From the Public Domain Review: Libellus Novus Elementorum Latinorum – designed by the Polish goldsmith Jan Christian Bierpfaff (1600-ca.1690) and engraved by fellow-countryman Jeremias Falck (1610–1677).

Bierpfaff worked as an apprentice at the Mackensen family of metalworkers in Cracow, a group “who introduced the Dutch auricular (‘shell or ear-like’) style of ornament into the Polish gold and silver workshops”. The influence is baroque stylings of the grotesque. The result is wonderfully surreal, the writhing forms hovering somewhere between the monstrous and floral.
