Toolshed Coloring Book (Paperback)
At this point, we may have seen a coloring book for everything. But what about more utilitarian objects? Who doesn’t like coloring tools? Tools for poking, drilling, screwing, and other ways to get your house in order. Perfect for any handyperson! [sweet pea]— From Toolshed Coloring Book
The Toolshed Coloring Book is perhaps the first coloring book aimed at men, and features 50 illustrations drawn from Lee Phillips' attention-grabbing Shed Project.
Started in 2013, originally as one drawing a day, Phillips' Shed Project documents item-by-item the contents of his late grandfather's shed. The project has received national coverage in the media and has generated profiles of Phillips and his work as far apart as Belgium, Japan, and Australia.
A sister project to the Toolshed Journal, and featuring a full inventory of the items featured, the Toolshed Coloring Book is both a cool activity book for men and a fascinating glimpse into The Shed Project itself.
