« Scans / Showa Books

In 1980, Showa produced two colouring books, a sketchbook and a notebook; all with impressive cover illustrations. These are occasionally available over Rinkya.

The colouring books are half-way between A5 and A4 in size with full-colour front-cover illustrations. They contain 32 pages of images. Some of these images span a double page.

I like the inside illustrations as well as the impressive covers since they put a different and attractive spin on the characters from the show.
They might come in useful for younger children or trigger some inspiration among adults.

The smaller notebook (roughly A5) features colour illustrations on both the front and back covers.
It contains plain paper with a small illustration of Legtrax on the bottom of each page.
On the back two inside pages, it features the colouring images from pages 1 and 3 of the "A" colouring book.

The front and back covers for the notebook as well as the cover for second colouring book (with the green logo as opposed to red) were apparently done by Toshio Okazaki.

Due to their age, the cover images have faded to varying extents.
These have been saved with mild optimisation performed by the scanner. Photoshop-optimised (auto) versions have also been uploaded.
The inside pages had yellowed around the edges and the outermost pages were especially discoloured. 
Scanning these in "illustration" mode made it easier remove this, although, in the case of one or two pages, quite a lot of work was needed.
