Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has been making history for most of her professional life, and now her superhero status has been immortalized in coloring-book form.

Ginsberg, 82, is known for her intelligence and tenacity. She’s also known for a personal style that inspires people. The completely free and printable coloring book, created by, invites her fans to color in her signature styles using their imagination.

The website is sharing the coloring book to celebrate Women’s History Month.

The Notorious RBG, as the Internet calls her, is fully aware of her online following, and she has not been shy about embracing the social-media-obsessed culture that watches her every move.

Last year, Irin Carmon and Shana Knizhnik published a guide to the Supreme Court Justice, Notorious RBG: The Life and Times of Ruth Bader Ginsberg. The book, born out of the popular Tumblr of the same name, mixed media, Biggie Smalls lyrics, and personal correspondence and reminiscence from her family to tell the justice’s story.’s coloring book is a bit more lighthearted, but it also speaks to Ginsburg’s enduring popularity and relevance in the minds of the Internet generation. It’s not just an activity book; it’s a way to introduce a young person to a woman who continues to make history.
