Created to celebrate the Centennial of the National Park Service, the deluxe coloring book features 64 full-page detailed coloring pages by the poster artists of “Coloring books are popular with people of all ages,” said Joel Anderson, owner of Anderson Design Group. “As budding young artists, we started honing our skills by coloring and tracing. Today as professional artists, we make our living creating original illustrated poster art featuring some of the most beautiful places in the world. So after producing over 80 original illustrated posters to celebrate the
100th Anniversary of the National Parks Service which led to an award-winning coffee table book, it just made sense to come full-circle and publish a coloring book based on our most popular National Park The United States has 59 protected areas known as national parks, which are operated by the National Park Service, an agency of the Department of the Interior. The Organic Act of 1916 created the National Park Service “to conserve the scenery and the natural and historic objects and wildlife therein, and to provide for the enjoyment of the same in such manner and by such means as will leave them unimpaired for the enjoyment of future generations.” Twenty-seven states have national parks, as do the territories of American Samoa and the United States Virgin Islands. California has the most (nine), followed by Alaska (eight), Utah (five), and Colorado (four).
The 59 Illustrated National Parks Coloring Book is perfect for coloring enthusiasts of all ages and skill levels.
Using their award-winning poster art, the Anderson Design Group redrew each composition by hand to create coloring pages that feature all 59 National Parks, plus 5 bonus pages of popular indigenous animals. The coloring book includes eight full-color pages with reference imagery of their original poster designs, plus quotes from famous nature lovers like Theodore Roosevelt and John Muir.
The deluxe 8.5″ x 11″ coloring book is printed on gallery-grade drawing paper with perforated pages so you can easily tear out your masterpieces and display them with pride.
