Jewish Colouring Books
These amazing Jewish colouring books printed in Israel are a feast of vibrant colour, satisfyingly grainy print quality and, best of all, some adorably mental goings on.
The oversized elderly gentleman in the chair who looks quite cosy. Until you notice the large and blue hand, casually resting there. The nurse getting ready to inject the two children in catsuits. The policeman and soldier – chatting casually with the man in a zebra costume. The deranged chef with the League of Gentleman style face mask, ominous cauldron and overzealous tong waving. I am infatuated with them all would love to know what kind of unstable mind produced them.
Found in Hackney, East London. The guy in the shop told me they were modern, but since most of his stock dated from the 1960’s and 70’s, I’m guessing this means c.1985.
