Hello Nakatomi Peoples!

THIS PROJECT LAUNCHES TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 2ND AT 2PM CENTRAL TIME- hit the link HERE to follow along and get first dibs on our limited edition rewards!

Nakatomi has once again joined forces with the Wrightson Estate to bring you an exciting new project: the return of Bernie Wrightson’s long-lost coloring book, MONSTERS: Color the Creature Book!

Originally published by Bernie way back in 1974, and distributed through mail-order, this oversized 11 x 17″ coloring book featured never-before-seen illustrations of classic monsters, in Bernie’s distinctive style! 

This book has been out of print for over 40 years, UNTIL NOW!

Available in a standard edition with a high-gloss cardstock cover, as well as a limited Artist Edition, with each image presented as an individual hand-printed silkscreen plate, on Strathmore Premium Smooth Ultimate White paper, suitable for all media- acrylic paint, watercolor, charcoal- whatever your artistic needs demand!

We’ve also invited Painter Extraordinaire Jason Edmiston along for the ride! Jason has done one of his classic coloring book paint-overs on the “Frankenstein” page, exclusive to this campaign as a limited edition Giclée print!
