Smithsonian Coloring Books
Airplanes: A Smithsonian Coloring Book allows readers to soar through the skies with some of the most recognized and revered airplanes from the collection at the National Air and Space Museum. The thrilling artistry of John Pirtel brings to life the very first powered aircrafts of the 1900s, revolutionary bombers and jet fighters of the 20th century, supersonic passenger airliner, and many more.
Dinosaurs: A Smithsonian Coloring Book explores millions of years of animal wonders, guided by experts from the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History. The artistic wizardry of Rachel Curtis (The Princess Bride: A Storybook to Color) captures scenes featuring the herbivorous Stegosaurus, the sea-dwelling Hesperornis, the giant sauropod Camarasaurus, and the mighty Tyrannosaurus.
If you like these coloring books, IDW and the Smithsonian Institution will be releasing “Birds: A Smithsonian Coloring Book” in May, 2021. With this meticulously illustrated coloring book, avian fans of all ages can explore the wonder of these feathered animals, the terrain in which they make their homes.
