Publisher’s description (Volume 1):

outlander-coloring-book-vol-1The world of Outlander awaits!

From the lush green of the Scottish Highlands to the military red of a British soldier’s coat or the vibrant hues of a tartan kilt, the colorful world of Claire Beauchamp Randall and Jamie Fraser is now yours to explore. Featuring gorgeous natural landscapes, detailed drawings of Claire’s medicinal herbs, depictions of the books’ most beloved scenes and characters, and intricately rendered clothing, weapons, and armor straight out of eighteenth-century Scotland, these exquisite black-and-white images—from renowned illustrators Juan Alarc&oacute:n, Yvonne Gilbert, Craig Phillips, Jon Proctor, Tomislav Tominć, and Rebecca Zomchek—are designed to dazzle and inspire. Fans of the series, as well as lovers of history and art, can party like it’s 1743.

Pull out your colored pencils, markers or watercolor paints! My webmistress, Loretta, loves these. She was introduced to coloring books for adults over a decade ago. Both creative and good stress reliever, she says, plus “you get to choose your own colors for everything in the Outlander universe.” <g>

Enjoy! And drop me a line in the web comments below. Remember that web comments are public and are moderated.


P.S. Should you happen to want a signed copy, either of #1 or #2, I was just by the Poisoned Pen a couple of days ago, and signed at least a hundred copies of Volume 2, plus a few of Volume 1 they had on hand.

  1. I would like to order the first series of coloring books from the Gaboldon, outlander series

    • Hi, Mark,

      Diana’s blog post outlines how to order the Outlander coloring books from an online vendor recommended by Diana’s publisher, Penguin Random House. There are individual links to webpages at PRH to order the two volumes individually.

      Or you may order them from the Poisoned Pen Bookstore, which has some coloring books available that are signed by Diana. The Pen is an independent bookstore which carries all of Diana’s current titles and ships around the world.

      Local bookstores may also carry them in your area.

      If you are having difficulty ordering them online, you can always contact the friendly folks at the Poisoned Pen for assistance by phone or email. Here is the Pen’s contact information. Send an email to:

      The Pen staff can take your order for one or both coloring books over the phone by credit or debit card.

      Feel free to contact me with any questions or problems. I love these coloring books, and use colored pencils; it is so relaxing. The artwork is gorgeous in both books! And they make beautiful gifts, too.

      Happy Holidays!
