About Coloring Books
A coloring book (or colouring book, or colouring page) is a type of book containing line art to which people are intended to add color using Crayons, Colored Pencils, Marker Pens, Paint or other artistic media. Coloring books like cults each have their own following.
- Traditional coloring books and coloring pages are printed on paper or card.
- Some coloring books have perforated edges so their pages can be removed from the books and used as individual sheets.
- Some coloring books may include short stories, a story line, or a series based on true events.
- Adult coloring books have become very popular, for example the Bondage Coloring Book and the Misfits Alien Fantasy Coloring Book series.
- Coloring books like television series have their own cult followings, their own coloring book cults.
Coloring Book History
Paint books and coloring books emerged in the United States as part of the “democratization of art” process, inspired by a series of lectures by British artist Joshua Reynolds, and the works of Swiss educator Johann Heinrich Pestalozzi and his student Friedrich Frobel, the father and founder of Kindergarten. (I am gratefully grateful that my next journey in life will be teaching art at the Fröbel International Kindergarten in Chengdu, China. I had no idea who Friedrich Fröbel was, until I spent time slowing down and writing my own book report).
- Many educators concluded that all, regardless of background, students stood to benefit from Art Education as a means of enhancing their conceptual understanding of the tangible, developing their cognitive abilities, and improving skills that would be useful in finding a profession, as well as for the children’s spiritual edification.
- The McLoughlin Brothers are credited as the inventors of the coloring book, when, in the 1880s, they produced The Little Folks Painting Book, in collaboration with Kate Greenaway. They continued to publish coloring books until the 1920s, when the McLoughlin Brothers became part of the Milton Bradley Company.
- Another pioneer in the genre was Richard F. Outcault. He authored Buster’s Paint Book in 1907, featuring the character of Buster Brown, which he had invented in 1902. It was published by the Stokes Company. This launched a trend to use coloring books to advertise a wide variety of products, including coffee and pianos.
- Until the 1930s, books were designed with the intent for them to be painted instead of colored. Even when Crayons came into wide use in the 1930s, books were still designed so that they could be painted or colored.
