I've been a collector of graphics, craft and art books, literature, and clip art since I was a teenager. I've shopped for books of clip art and coloring pages at Dover for more than 40 years. They've been publishing graphics, design resources and cultural books for adults for decades, and more recently added new collections available on CDrom/DVD and through online membership. Dover publishes the best art, coloring and clip art collections at great prices, and they print delightful books and craft kits for all ages.

I have several Dover graphics collections in my design studio as well as numerous art and coloring books I use for reference and creative inspiration.

Visit the Dover site for full details on these and other fine titles, and to browse the full collection of coloring books for adults.
