Together we can color our worlds in any way…
Today’s Wordless Wednesday post comes to you with a few words of explanation, because as you can see, this week’s image is actually not a photo. Today’s image is a page from The Coloring Book for the Super Intelligent by Brett Bender. It was sold to help raise funds for the AIDS Library of Philadelphia way back in 1992.
There is a quote from Bender on the last page of the book. It reads, “Together we can color our worlds in any way to make our dreams come true.” He’s speaking in reference to working together to cure AIDS but the quote always resonated with me.
In my memory this was given to me while I was sick with Mono but since I had Mono in September of 1991 I’m obviously mistaken. I definitely remember it being from Tower Books on South Street (RIP), but now I don’t know if I bought it myself or if in fact it was a gift from someone.
I still have a few pages that I haven’t colored in but the uncolored pages are dwindling. I wish someone would find Brett Bender and have him create another edition of The Coloring Book for the Super Intelligent. There aren’t enough coloring books for adults.
So there you have it kids, a Wordy Wordless Wednesday post showcasing art created in 2 steps; the semi blank canvas provided by the first artist with colors provided by the second artist, me.
