Adult coloring books have been a thing for awhile now, but patterns tend to be flowers, animals, and other nature scenes. The Industrial Strength Coloring Book by noted graphic designer Robert Pizzo and Quill driver Books will appeal to people who are interested in manufacturing, technology, and engineering, with patterns that feature gears, circuits, gears and more. 

What is it?

Industrial Strength Coloring Book: Gear Up to Break the Coloring Mold by Robert Pizzo is an adult coloring book that features intricate industrial focused images.

The book has 50 black and white line art images that are printed on 70-pound paper that is printed only on one side and is perforated so that you can remove your artwork to share and display.


The images won’t appeal to all adult coloring book fans because they are of factory settings, machinery, and tools.

The illustrator of the book is Robert Pizzo, a graphic designer who has done work for Newsweek, Verizon, Coke, Pepsi and more.

You can use colored pencils, markers, and even crayons to color in this book. I think fine tipped colored markers work best and I was happy that the paper is thick enough that the ink did not bleed through.

Final thoughts

Coloring books aren’t just for kids anymore. Many adults are enjoying this relaxing past time too because it is a great way to unwind after a long day. Robert Pizzo’s Industrial Strength Coloring Book is an adult coloring book that readers of the Gadgeteer will appreciate because it features gears and other tech that we enjoy.

  2. The idea is interesting, but the industrial spirit should be more, shall we say, heavy-duty and load-bearing. I enjoy steampunk style – Perhaps, you can experiment in this direction. And of course, children were enjoying the depiction of industrial machinery for a long time – Which is completely normal, not everyone likes floral patterns.
