The Scriptorium’s Digital Coloring Books are collections of classic illustrations idealy suited for coloring on computer or with crayon, pencil or pen. Unlike a traditional coloring book, the digital format allows you to color on your computer or to print out multiple copies of images so they can be colored again and again.
Our Digital Coloring Books are designed for aspiring artists from 5 to 11, but the images are sophisticated and well suited for parents who want to color with their kids. Unlike many contemporary coloring books which feature simplistic and uninspiring ‘generic’ art, these images are exciting, romantic and challenging to color, drawing on themes from traditional legends and fairytales. Among the artists featured in our Digital Coloring Books series are Howard Pyle, Arthur Rackham, J. D. Batten, Louis Rhead, Milo Winter, Charles Folkard and other fairytale illustrators whose style has the openness and contrast appropriate for coloring. All of the illustrations are in large size and will print clearly. We particularly recommend using them on the computer with programs like KidPaint to increase computer skills while undertaking challenging coloring projects.
