Giveaway: Win the Complete Collection of Steve McDonald’s Coloring Books
Bestselling author Steve McDonald is back with the final installment of his celebrated coloring book series—Fantastic Machines: A Coloring Book of Amazing Devices Real and Imagined.
Here he employs his unique photo-based illustration style to celebrate the physical beauty of vintage and modern machines and devices. The result is a coloring book with intricate, fun-to-color drawings of jumbo jets, pinball machines, weaving looms, tractors, space stations, motorbikes, steampunk creations, circuit boards, locomotives, and much more—not to mention imaginative and mechanical mandalas.
A lifelong traveler since his family moved to the Middle East in 1979, Steve has lived in Saudi Arabia, Italy, India, and Indonesia. He has also visited dozens of other countries and spent the better part of two decades traveling his native Canada from coast to coast via car, bus, helicopter, canoe, ship, and on foot.
Everywhere he goes, he soaks up the local color, the beauty of his surroundings, and, most of all, the lines—of the landscape, the architecture, the objects, and the machines he finds along the way.
His previous books in the series—Fantastic Cities (2015), Fantastic Structures (2016), Fantastic Collections (2016), and Fantastic Planet (2017)—all showcase his style, complexity, diverse interests, and eye for detail.
To celebrate the publication of Fantastic Machines, we’re giving away all five coloring books in the series, plus a set of Fantastic Pencils! Enter to win below and happy coloring.
Best of luck! Contest ends 8/31/17 at midnight PT.
