- Trinity University Press on Tuesday released a coloring book full of portraits of Revolutionary Women of Texas and Mexico.
And it’s already sold out.
Inspired by the book by the same title, the collection features 24 portraits of some of the most inspirational women in Texas' and Mexico's history. They include soldaderas, saints and rebels such as novelist Sandra Cisneros, religious liberty advocate María Concepción Acevedo de la Llata and diplomat Jane McManus Storm Cazneau.
Illustrations by local artists Kathy and Lionel Sosa accompany brief biographies discussing the work and life of each woman.
Though the book sold out within a day, it’s now in a second printing and should be back on shelves in coming weeks. Copies will be available through the Trinity University Press website, Amazon and retail spots including Feliz Modern and Barnes & Noble.
