Well, color me surprised

I have now seen it all.

Dover Publications released a Steampunk Stained Glass Coloring Book last week.
Sixteen imaginative stained glass illustrations transport colorists into an alternative reality. Dressed in eccentric adaptations of Victorian fashions, these steampunkers operate flying machines and submarines, build robots, conduct experiments, and engage in other activities reminiscent of the futuristic fiction of H. G. Wells and Jules Verne.

Momma has got to get one of these for my Big Sister.

What really cracks me up is that has used copies for sale already.

Really? Used coloring books?

And just to keep this educational, the McLoughlin Brothers produced the first known coloring book, The Little Folks' Painting Bookin the 1879 with the prolific English children's book illustrator and writer, Kate Greenaway.
