In honor of today being Election Day in the United States, I thought I would share a strange piece of political ephemera from 1964.
This is the LBJ Coloring Book. The coloring book was published in 1964 by Gem Publishing and was written by Norman Miller and Illustrated by Cal Massey. This coloring book is told from the perspective of Her, one of the Johnson’s dogs.
In 1964, Lyndon Baines Johnson was running for President of the United States. He had been President for less than a year by the time this book came out (after the assassination of John Kennedy), and had enough skeletons out of the closet that Norman Miller and the (presumed) Republicans created this coloring book so you could see and color them all.
The key to each page: 3. Lady Bird Johnson 4.
