The Anderson Design Group is well-known for its series of posters commemorating the 100-year anniversary of the National Park Service. It’s already turned those prints into an award-winning coffee table book. So, why not take it one step further by removing all color from those illustrations and allowing us fill in between the lines?


For the latest addition to their national park series, 59 Illustrated National Parks Coloring Book, ADG artists redrew by hand 59 of their iconic prints to create coloring pages and added five more featuring some of the animals that call the parks home. The prints were recreated in a manner that could appeal to both children and adult coloring aficionados (because not only are adult coloring books all the rage right now, they’re also apparently really good for you).

“After producing over 80 original illustrated posters to celebrate the 100th Anniversary of the National Parks Service,” ADG founder Joel Anderson said, “it just made sense to come full-circle and publish a coloring book based on our most popular National Park posters.”


The book features 64 coloring pages printed on perforated, gallery-grade drawing paper. There are also eight reference pages featuring the original posters, and quotes from national parks luminaries such as Theodore Roosevelt and John Muir. 59 Illustrated National Parks Coloring Book is currently available at the Anderson Design Group online store, and will be on sale at most national park gifts stores by mid-July.
