Norske Malebøker is a gorgeous-looking anthology of vintage Norwegian picture, activity, and coloring book illustrations, assembled by Einar Økland from his own collection. 50 Watts has a typically amazing selection of images in a rich and beautiful variety of styles. In the 1920s-40s Norwegian kids were apparently encouraged to use watercolors, not crayons.
But let's just agree now that this is hog butchering scene is the greatest non-Johnny Cash-related coloring book page in history.
That there doesn't seem to be much [or any] distribution outside Norway feels like an axe in the head.
