THE GAY COLORING BOOK, CHRONICLING THE LIFE of PERCY and his FRIENDS (1964)

THE DEVIL’S TALE: The Gay Coloring Book, The Guild Press, 1964. Only a handful of these rare coloring books are known to exist. Chronicling the life of Percy and his friends through 24 drawings, The Gay Coloring Book was one of the first books published by the Guild Press to take readers into all-male social spaces such as gay parties and gay bars, as well as the sexual cruising scenes in public parks, public bathrooms, alleys, and bathhouses. The coloring book features illustrations by George Haimsohn, who also published gay fiction under the name Alexander Goodman.

    Possibly inspired from Barbra’s hit “My Coloring Book” released about a year earlier.

  3. I believe the art on this is actually by legendary leather artist Dom Orejudos (better known as “Etienne” and “Stephen”).
