Bennett Klein started out quietly entering the coloring book market with a single book and yet his popularity has skyrocketed in the last year with his Facebook coloring group waiting anxiously every Friday for his #FridayFreebie offer.
Bennett Klein Colour My Sketchbook Coloring Books
Mr. Klein’s images are incredibly imaginative and ridiculously detailed. He often merges mythical creatures with real ones, or two creatures into a completely new creation that will enchant you as you color.

Not a big surprise, every image in this Bennett Klein book contains a flower of some sort, not in the expected ways of course! One of my favorites is topping an ice cream cone.

Mae Georgina Klein – Illustrator
In case you ever wondered whether or not artistic talent can be inherited, take a look at Bennett Klein’s daughter Mae’s work in her new “Maedalas” series of Coloring Books. I also have to say that Mae does a better job on the covers of her books. Maybe she could help her dad out with those!
This book was the first of Mr. Klein’s incredible art that I experienced and though the paper isn’t the greatest, it’s one of those books where you choose to either work with the Createspace paper or you copy the images onto cardstock. He also has a few of his books available at a slightly lower cost in electronic version
This is the first Bennett Klein book with black backgrounds some of the designs are the same or similar to other books but with the DARKER touch
A classically-trained illustrator and compulsive sketcher, Bennett Klein has been designing and illustrating for over 30 years. His preference for fanciful black and white drawings is a natural fit for the adult colouring world.
