Prince: Purple Reign: A Colouring Book

As someone who has loved Prince's music since I was a teenager and has been a member of this commmunity (under various names) since 1998, it was a pleasure to be asked to write the text for this book. More than a colouring book, each one of the 30 illustrations by Coco Balderrama includes a history of the time period and quotes from Prince and his associates, presenting a chronological timeline from Prince's first photo shoot in 1977 to his final Piano & A Microphone tour in 2016. Out on Plexus Publishing (London) in December online and in stores. The full press release from Plexus Publishing appears below:

Prince: Purple Reign: A Colouring Book


Illustrations by Coco Balderrama

Text by A.D. Hitchin


Featuring 30 dazzling illustrations, Prince: Purple Reign: A Colouring Book offers a uniquely creative way to remember Prince, the legendary and innovative musician who became one of the greatest superstars of the 1980s and beyond.


Feisty and opinionated, Prince refused to compromise his artistic vision, producing all of his own albums from the age of seventeen, and pioneering change in the music industry. Prince advocated breaking down boundaries and stepping out of the mould, adopting different personae to give himself greater freedom with his music and championing sexual fluidity and equality.


Detailing some of the lesser known facts about his life, Prince: Purple Reign: A Colouring Book, illustrates Prince's most memorable looks. So much more than a colouring book, each image has a history, with quotes from Prince and the people who knew and worked with him. This unique volume gives fans the opportunity to pay their own tribute, and raise their purple pencils to the legendary performer that was Prince.

Are you sure you're not referring to the colouring book published earlier in the year by Feral House? Because that does indeed have mistakes in it. This is a new book published just a few days ago.
