Hi, my Name is Niffer Desmond. I am an artist, an explorer of mysteries and a major fan of the Father of our modern age, Nikola Tesla! Because once you learn about Nikola and all the amazing things he invented and predicted for our present day, you have to wonder- why didn’t I hear of this guy before?! If it weren’t for his brilliance we wouldn’t have any electricity, or light, or radio – and so much more. When I learned the importance of just a fraction what he did for the world I thought- Wow, here I thought Dr. Who was fictional, a man who comes from the future and then creates it, for the advancement of humanity-That’s Tesla. And we never were taught about him in school?! Thankfully many have taken on the mantle to tell us the story of this amazing man; So many great books, artworks and films and even cars have been made to bring his life to light. Yet there was still one thing missing, something that the world is long overdue for- a Nikola Tesla coloring book!
This was/is my dream- to create this illustrated look at Tesla for you to participate in his life story by coloring in his legacy with your imagination. This is no ordinary coloring book- it also educational with quotes, facts, stories and activities like word hunts and mazes. It is a revealing view of his life- the unlikely story of a brilliant Serbian child born in a small village in Croatia during a lightning storm, who would one day harness that electricity to power the world!
This book brings his life to light with beautiful illustrations of stories from Tesla’s life, ranging from a childhood discovery of electricity to his world changing inventions and even the famous Tesla vs Edison “Battle of the Currents”! Now children and adults alike can learn about this genius while coloring in his legacy. The coloring book was successfully funded thanks to the wonderful supporters of the Kickstarter campaign that ended in December 2015. This first edition of 500 books sold out, and not the book is in its 2nd edition printing, available here! Hours of fun and inspiration await in word hunts, mazes, and illustrated quotes from the Man of Tomorrow. Printed on high quality 50% recycled art paper, 24 pages plus a color and cut-out 3D Wardenclyffe tower on the back!

What people are saying about the book
Here is a one-of-kind superbly rendered coloring book concept that blends history, art and science in concert to bring inventor-scientist Nikola Tesla out of the shadows into light. What better way for families, children and adults to come joyfully together to explore a historical figure and moment in time that changed the world for the betterment of humanity. I see more than Tesla in it’s future because this book may well be the first of many unheralded histories that will bring inspirational men and women who deserve Niffer Desmond’s visionary artistry. I highly recommend this book to all! ~Roger Ferragallo, artist
Tesla fractals abound……!! You’re an inspiration and conduit of soul & aether sparks. I’ll be spreading your work far & wide…. Thank you from my current & former child-like wonder & awe. ~Will Jova, musician
I bought a copy of this coloring book for my brother for Christmas because he is an electrical engineer. It has been great at giving him something to do to unwind after work that is also interesting to him. What I didn’t expect was the level of interest in the coloring book that my two young nieces showed. It gave them a way to interact with their father and learn something while he was enjoying himself and unwinding with some meditative coloring. This book is brilliant because it bridges all age groups and brings them together while teaching them to understand someone who was a great humanitarian… Someone who has otherwise essentially been written out of the history books.

I have been working on tesla coils and other high voltage devices for fun for a few years now, and then I found out about this amazing coloring book. Having artists in my family and close friends who are artists I am always impressed by beautiful artwork, and let me tell you this artist has some serious skills. Absolutely gorgeous imagery depicting scenes from Tesla’s life and work. In addition to the beautiful art, on each page you learn about Tesla history. It’s like a history book and coloring book in one. And the history isn’t just what is commonly known about Tesla, but many obscure facts and details that you would only know by reading a biography of Tesla’s life, which I have done many times in the past.

This coloring book is a creative and enjoyable introduction to the life of one of my absolute favorite human beings, the great inventor Nikola Tesla. It is written and illustrated in a highly digestible and gorgeously-rich fashion for Tesla fans of all ages, and the coloring book format can be a meditative way of absorbing information. It is imperative that everyone becomes aware of this man’s contributions, and what better way to introduce your kids to the life of this great master?
