'HORROR COLOURING BOOK'


I am quite sure that when we were all children we had colouring books of some kind, usually full of animals, birds, cars, landscapes etc, etc. Then there were the colouring books based on a TV series, film or cartoon with action type scenes featuring familiar characters. Here's a horror colouring book for the young artistic monster fan, there was another one in the same series simply called 'Monsters', I'll try and put a pic of this on sometime.

Would love to see some of the pages inside, I mean can you actually color a picture of Peter Cushing as a zombie?

Wow, I can't believe I found this. We had these in South Africa as well and I have been searching for the cover for ages. I would really, really love to find that "Monsters" cover as I remember that to be pretty freaky. Are you going to be putting it up? I really hope so.

Hi Ursa
Glad that you have found the picture of the cover here at the Cobwebbed Room. I will be putting the Monsters cover up soon, I've been meaning to do it for awhile now, I'll write myself a note to remind me.

I'm sure I had this as a youngster...it's not actually that old. I remember having it in the early 80s. The cover is misleading because, if I remember rightly, the pictures inside were poorly drawn made up monsters & not scenes from the horror films shown.

Hi Dom
Yes the colouring book did come out during the early 1980's. I used to be disapointed that the covers never matched up to the content, great shame as some of the those cover pictures would of been great to colour.

I can't find any info on the company that made this..."Action Colouring Book" or "World".
This was my favorite book as a kid, until someone stole it from me. Would love to replace it if I could.
