Cold War Coloring: Political Adult Coloring Books of the Kennedy Era – Expanded Edition

The first time adult coloring books swept America, they weren’t therapeutic… they were satiric.

In the early 1960s, the first wave of parody coloring books used the form to mock the culture of the day. Here in this expanded edition are seven prime examples that took on the political conflicts of that era.

  • The New Frontier Coloring Book – The very first political adult coloring book takes on the liberalism of the Kennedy administration.
  • JFK Coloring Book – a genuine New York Times-certified best seller, this look at the Kennedy White House, the Kennedy friends, and especially the Kennedy family contains beautiful art by Mort Drucker, master caricaturist from Mad.
  • New Frontier Comic Coloring Book – an all-out attack on the Kennedy administration, produced by Arthur J. Weaver, a politician who was a four-time delegate to the Republican National Convention
  • Nikita Sergeyevich Khrushchev Coloring Book – a look at the notorious but colorful Soviet leader, written by Amram Ducovny, father of actor David Duchovny.
  • Khrushchev’s Top Secret Coloring Book – with Gene Shalit on the writing and Jack Davis of Mad fame handling the art, the communists take it on the chin.
  • The Sing Along with Khrushchov Coloring Book – drawn by a Hungarian artist who had been imprisoned by the Nazis for his political cartoons, this book was discussed at a meeting of the House Un-American Activities Committee.
  • The John Birch Coloring Book – a poke at the right-wing John Birch Society, who were concerned with communists abroad and communists (real and perceived) at home.
