    About the Author


    Wynn Kapit, the designer and illustrator of this book, has had careers in law, graphic and advertising design,
    painting, and teaching.

    In 1955, he graduated from law school, with honors, from the University of Miami and was admitted to the Florida
    Bar. He practiced law both before and after military service. Four years later, he decided to pursue a childhood
    ambition and enrolled at what is now the Art Center College in Los Angeles, where he studied graphic design. Afterwards,
    he worked in the New York advertising world for six years as a designer and art director. He “dropped out” in the late
    1960s, returned to California, and began painting. His numerous exhibitions included a one-man show at the California
    Palace of the Legion of Honor in 1968. He returned to school and received a master’s degree in painting from the
    University of California at Berkeley in 1972.

    Kapit was teaching figure drawing in Adult Ed in San Francisco in 1975 when he decided he needed to learn more
    about bones and muscles. He enrolled in Dr. Elson’s anatomy class at San Francisco City College. While he was a student,
    he created the word-and-illustration coloring format that seemed to be a remarkably effective way of learning the
    subject. He showed some layouts to Dr. Elson and indicated his intention to do a coloring book on bones and muscles for
    artists. Immediately recognizing the potential of this method, Dr. Elson encouraged Kapit to do a “complete” coloring
    book on anatomy and offered to collaborate on the project. The first edition of The Anatomy Coloring Book was published
    in 1977, and its immediate success inspired the development of a completely new field of publishing: educational
    coloring books.

    Kapit went on to create The Physiology Coloring Book with the assistance of two professors who were teaching at
    Berkeley: Dr. Robert I. Macey and Dr. Esmail Meisami. That book was published in 1987 and has gone through two editions.
    In the early 1990s, Kapit wrote and designed The Geography Coloring Book, now in its second edition.


    Lawrence M. Elson, PhD, planned the content and organization, provided sketches, and wrote the text for the book. This
    is his seventh text, having authored It’s Your Body and The Zoology Coloring Book and co-authored The Human Brain
    Coloring Book and The Microbiology Color ing Book. He received his BA in zoology and pre-med at the University of
    California at Berkeley and continued there to receive his PhD in human anatomy. Dr. Elson was assistant professor of
    anatomy at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, participated in the development of the Physician’s Assistant Program,
    lectured and taught dissection anatomy at the University of California School of Medicine in San Francisco, and taught
    general anatomy, from protozoons to humans, at City College of San Francisco.

    In his younger days, Dr. Elson trained to become a naval aviator and went on to fly dive-bombers off aircraft
    carriers in the Western Pacific. While attending college and graduate school, he remained in the Naval Air Reserve and
    flew antisubmarine patrol planes and helicopters. His last position in his 20-year Navy career was as commanding officer
    of a reserve antisubmarine helicopter squadron.

    Dr. Elson is a consultant to insurance companies and personal injury and medical malpractice attorneys on
    causation-of-injury/death issues, a practice that has taken him throughout the United States and Canada. He has
    testified in hundreds of personal injury trials and arbitrations. His research interests are focused on the anatomic
    bases of myofascial pain arising from low velocity accidents.
