About the Author

Wynn Kapit graduated in 1955 from the University of Miami, Florida with honors in Business Administration and Law. He then attended Art Center School in Los Angeles and worked in New York as a graphic designer and advertising art director from 1960-66. He moved to California to pursue a painting career and was given a one-man show at the Legion of Honor in San Francisco in 1968. He then attended the University of California at Berkeley and received a Masters in Painting and worked as a portraitist and teacher of figure drawing.

While taking a class in human anatomy at San Francisco City College, he discovered a way to effectively learn the subject by coloring in drawings, diagrams and names. The teacher of the course, Lawrence Elson, Ph.D. agreed to help him produce a coloring book. Elson wrote and Kapit designed and illustrated The Anatomy Coloring Book, which was published in 1977 and has been a widely-translated bestseller ever since. The Physiology Coloring Book was published in 1987, with the assistance of two professors from Berkeley: Robert Macey and Esmail Meisami. The Geography Coloring Book was published in 1991; Kapit drew the maps and wrote the text. The Anatomy Coloring Book was published in a second edition in 1993, and second editions of Geography and Physiology Coloring Books will be published in 1997.


Lawrence M. Elson received his undergraduate degree from the University of California, Berkeley in Zoology (Pre-Med), and completed his graduate and Ph.D. work in Human Anatomy also at the University of California, Berkeley. Elson has served as an instructor in human anatomy at the City College of San Francisco, an assistant professor of anatomy at Baylor College of Medicine, and as a lecturer at numerous additional universities and professional organizations.

Elson is the founder and president of Coloring Concepts, Inc. (CCI), producer and packager of college level, educational, scientific directed-coloring texts. He is the author/co-author of the Anatomy Coloring Book, Human Brain Coloring Book, Zoology Coloring Book, and Microbiology Coloring Book.

Presently, he is principally functioning as a clinical and forensic anatomist retained as a consultant to governments, provinces, insurance and other corporations, and law firms on causation of injury issues in cases in or anticipated to be involved in litigation.

Future plans include expanding CCI by developing new titles in the physical sciences and other education-related disciplines.

This might look like a kid book but it's definitely not! This is really a great way to memorize your anatomy without spending boring hours trying to do so! If you are a visual kind of person, this is for you! Even if you are not a visual kind of person, this is ridiculously not expensive for an anatomy book (that was the reason I bought it in the first place). If you don't want to spend 100$ on a book and still have something to study with this is for you!

This Anatomy Coloring Book provided a very easy and fun way to actually learn about the anatomy of the body! I received the book on time from the seller which is always satisfying!! I was very pleased with everything. Some illustrations can be a bit confusing and hard to understand, but overall this is a great tool to learn about how the body is made up! Would recommend it to everyone who wants to learn about anatomy, whether it be the bones, muscles or heart!

I bought this on sale on amazon because it was a required textbook for my yoga teacher training course
This is a wonderful book for understanding the bones, muscles, and terms for any student studying the topic
I did find there might have been some mistakes in the book in regards to colouring instructions
(Sometimes asks you to continue with same colours on one page but you turn to that page- and has nothing to do with the page your on)
Overall very good textbook
Therapeutic to colour- right!?

Such a great idea! I am a very visual learner, so this book was perfect for me. The process of colouring itself is fun and relaxing, and I found this learning technique to be very helpful in improving my overall recall of the information. Each page is a self contained lesson, so it's easy to just meander through the book in your spare time, and pick and choose the pages that interest you most. I bought this because I was taking an Intro to A&P class, and really liked having this resource to help with the topics I was having trouble understanding or remembering.

Interesting way of learning the different parts of the human anatomy. The labels can be a bit confusing sometimes, but with so many components, it's understandable. The info is more in depth and technical, more geared toward medical. I got it for my anatomy class in yoga teaching program.

I bought this book to use for my university level anatomy course. There are descriptions of each part of the body you're coloring on the side, it helps alot with the learning process! I would recommend this colouring book for someone who is a visual learner and likes hands on activities. The figures and bubble words are easy to color. It has the potential to totally replace my textbook haha.

I thought this book was done really well. It was very detailed and had accurate labeling. The only problem was that it took a really long time to color each thing and I didn't end up learning much from the book because I was so focused on coloring!
