New Adventures in Coloring (1959)

Cool stuff is where you find it and I love space art with kids in it. This was a tablet style coloring book with a great front cover illustration.

New Adventures in Coloring. NY: Sandusky (1959). Part of the "Fun Book- Informative Fun" series of books.

Here is close up of the cover (really the best part)

I miss the old lever-controlled spaceships :)

Here is our happy astronaut. I wonder whatever happened to those 360 degree view space helmets (so useful when identifying someone from behind)?

Why do I think he is happy? Well because on the Moon he can travel like this.
In addition he has a "real" rocket. I know I am being silly but the cover really is the best part of this one.
