The History channel show that launched a thousand memes, Ancient Aliens, is coming soon to a bookshelf near you. Getting simultaneous November 15 releases are an official companion book as well as an adult coloring book. We’ve got an advanced look at three of the outlines, drawn by artist Kathleen Edwards.
The coloring book contains 40 detailed drawings of objects, places, and phenomena that will be quite familiar to fans of Ancient Aliens. The drawings we’ve posted here reference Roswell crop circles (aliens); the “Golden Flyer Figurines” of Tolima, Colombia (aliens); and Mayan artwork found in King Pakal’s tomb (definitely aliens). According to the book’s official description:
Introducing viewers to mysterious ancient relics and wondrous archeological sites, the show explores the fascinating unanswered questions about the origins of our civilizations and the possibility of extraterrestrial influence on our cultures and development.
The perfect accompaniment to Ancient Aliens®: The Official Companion Book, this authorized coloring book includes intricately detailed illustrations of more than three dozen iconic monuments and objects tied to ancient astronaut theory—from the Great Pyramid of Giza to Mayan artifacts eerily similar to modern astronauts.
Completists (and anyone who already owns the entire Time-Life Mysteries of the Unknown series) will also want to pick up Ancient Aliens: The Official Companion Book:
Filled with exciting insights and behind-the scenes stories from the show’s creators and leading experts in ancient alien theory, the book explores the key questions at the heart of the series:
Who were they?
Why did they come?
What did they leave behind?
Where did they go?
Will they return?
Whether or not you believe, it’s still intriguing stuff—even if the mystery of Giorgio A. Tsoukalos’ hair will never be solved.
