"Science Fiction Anthology" Coloring Book - 1 of 2

Stuck in the midst of all those drawing "how to" books I've been posting for the last few weeks, was this curious little item I've been toting around wince I was about 11 or 12.

I don't think I even fully grasped that it was a coloring book until much, much later.  I thought it was just the cliff notes of cliff notes of famous science fiction stories...but that's what it is...a coloring book.

I gained my awareness of some of these stories from this book, and would stare for a bit at the strangely slick yet satisfying in their unfamiliarity drawings.

It somehow got mixed in with those "how to" books in my library, I think just because it's over sized, and there was no other real category to Dewey Decimal this dooflicky into.

At any rate...these were scanned as color files, so if'n ya wants to, you can pull these into Photoshop and color them.

I thought it would make for a nice breezy Friday/Saturday pair of postings.

Talk to you soon.

Not often you see a coloring book that needs to come with spoiler alert for all the endings it gives away.

LOL. BTW, Darth Vader is Luke Skywalker's dad and "Rosebud" is a sled.

That's not many coloring books that have endings that need to be kept secret. :)

I used thin tipped marker in mine. The pages were thick enough that it didn't leak through. I've been searching everywhere for another copy (mine was stolen). This is awesome!
