Please excuse the plug – Oh, who am I kidding?! – but I’m a little excited about my new book and the fact that it comes out tomorrow, 1st June 2018, the anniversary of Anne Boleyn’s coronation!

It’s a bit different from my past book projects as it’s a colouring book. Each colouring page (drawn by the talented Dmitry Yakhovsky) is accompanied by text written by yours truly telling the story of the rise and fall of Anne Boleyn. I really enjoyed doing this project and I hope you all like the finished result. Hever Castle bookshop was given a few advance copies and those who saw it there loved it – phew!

Here’s the blurb:

Claire Ridgway, author of The Fall of Anne Boleyn: A Countdown and owner of The Anne Boleyn Files website, and artist Dmitry Yakhovsky have come together to create this beautiful colouring book which will be enjoyed by young and old alike.

The Life of Anne Boleyn Colouring Book tells Anne Boleyn’s story through both text and drawings, from her family background, through her rise and fall at Henry VIII’s court, to her execution in May 1536, and her legacy: Queen Elizabeth I. Learn all about Anne Boleyn while Dmitry’s stunning illustrations and your colouring bring Anne, her story and other famous Tudor characters to life. This book is a fitting tribute to Queen Anne Boleyn.

  1. Never apologise for plugging stuff on your website. How else are we gonna find out about these things. 🙂

    Dmitry is an amazing talent. I’ve seen his work in Tudor Life Mag.
