In this lavish colouring book for adults, the fanciful, elegant world of artist, playwright, and filmmaker Jean Cocteau comes alive. As a playwright, he is best known for The Human Voice (1930); as a filmmaker, for directing Beauty and the Beast (1946) and Orpheus (1948). In the 1910s, he was a prominent member of the Paris avant-garde, forming friendships and professional relationships with Picasso, Stravinsky, Gide, Proust, and Apollinaire. His paintings and graphic art were playful, fantastical expressions, exploring mythological themes and subjects, personal portraits, and domestic scenes.

This book includes many of Cocteau's graphic drawings ready to be coloured in, alongside original illustrations for reference. It also includes images from the original film poster for Beauty and the Beast, playful doodles that Cocteau included in written letters to his lover Jean Marais, and drawings of Parisien women, cats, sleeping figures, circus performers, and other figures emanating from Cocteau's imagination.

The Jean Cocteau Coloring Book is a captivating activity book for adults that also serves as a primer on the work of this inspiring artist.

Full-colour throughout.

This book is produced in conjunction with the Jean Cocteau Committee, which serves to promote Cocteau's work internationally.

The Jean Cocteau Committee promotes the works of Jean Cocteau at a national and international level.
