Coloring books for adults have been popular before – in the early 1800s. “Gift books” were collected essays, short fiction, and poetry which started being sold in England in the 1820s. The books would be printed each year in autumn, in time for the holiday rush. They quickly became popular. Over sixty gift books were in print by 1832. But those aren’t coloring books, you’re thinking.
Well, these gift books were often lavishly decorated with black-and-white engravings. And water coloring had become popular around the 1830s, when gift books were already a hit. The black-and-white illustrations in gift books allowed people of ordinary skill to color in and display these book plates. As their own masterpieces, of course. Which made gift books even more popular. And that is the history of the first coloring books for adults.
Edward Steichen’s “The Maypole (Empire State Building)”
Edward Steichen was born on this day in 1879. In addition to being a photographer himself, Steichen was Director of MoMA’s Department of Photography and curated the museum’s popular exhibition The Family of Man. Steichen took this photo of the Empire State Building a year after its construction ended, and used two separate negatives to create the photograph’s dizzying effect.
American photographer Lee Friedlander, born #otd in 1934, has one of the most inventive, prolific careers in the history of photography. Friedlander’s lively, irreverent glimpses of city streets and tongue-in-cheek self-portraits of the 1960s upended the earnest humanism of postwar photography. In the decades that followed, he evolved an influential visual language of the “American social landscape” that continues to inspire imitation. Explore works and past exhibitions at mo.ma/2tnoO7D.
