Designs by Christopher Marley Coloring Book
by Christopher Marley
2010, 48 pages. This wonder-full coloring book features 22 images based on the stunning original artwork of Christopher Marley. Each illustration is reproduced in a small, color version of the original artwork and as a full-page black line drawing. Coloring pages are blank on the back so they can be cut out and displayed. Designs are shown as small reproductions on the inside front and back covers. You can copy the colors as arranged by Christopher Marley or by using your own favorite colors. Each drawing is accompanied by a question about the insects the answers are printed upside down on the back of the page.
Sample page caption: These are all beetles except for one that is considered a true bugcan you guess which one it is? (Hint: True bugs, unlike beetles, have no moving mouth parts and therefore cannot bite or chew. They feed through a stiff straw called a proboscis.)
The last page of the book is blank so that you can draw and color your own insect picture. Perhaps it will be one you have seen in your neighborhood or in your school yard. Or it may be a fantastic creature that crawls or flies out of your vivid imagination! Paperback; 8-1/2 x 11″.
About the author/artist: As a child, Christopher Marley was afraid of bugs! But now he travels the world to study them, collect them, and arrange them into dazzling works of art.
