Coloring Book- The History

The USA is the origin and birthplace of coloring books. This introduction was part of a process called the democratization of art.

Instructors from all over agreed that an education in the arts was crucial in developing cognitive skills and enhancing peoples' perception of the world.

Coloring books were the invention of the McLoughlin Brothers. 'The Little Folk's Painting Book' was the very first coloring book made by them in the 1880's. For this book, they worked with a lady called Kate Greenway, and they kept making coloring books until the 1920's. It was then that the McLoughlins joined the Milton Bradley firm. Another man credited for the progress of coloring books is Richard Outcault. A coloring book called Buster's Paint Book was written by Richard in 1907. He had created a character in 1902 called Buster Brown, and this coloring book he made was based on this character. This book is what started the process of companies using coloring books as a means for advertising their products. The first coloring books were made with the thought that they should be painted and not colored, and despite the growing popularity of crayons in the 1930's, there was no change in this approach.
