Millions of adults around the world have started to color again in the past couple of years. A lot of the books are just geometric patterns that some people claim relieve stress. I think they do, at least for me. As adults we may, only if we choose, color within the lines. I wanted this coloring book to be different from most of the other coloring books for adults. I’d like you to be able to create real art from your coloring; art that may be framed and hung on the wall. To make that possible I found 38 pieces of art from the 19th and 20th centuries. These are paintings and a few drawings that deal with gay themes. I also left most of the drawings with texture and shading so that they will be a cut above the usual finished coloring page. You won’t find a lot of big penises in this art like you might find in modern fantasy gay art. And I believe you’ll recognize a great deal of this art as porno for wealthy Victorian gentlemen.
