The Fantastic Cities Coloring Book of Amazing Places
Do you remember the public television drawing show in the late 80s/early 90s called The Secret Cities? For some reason, that show was very memorable to me. It featured "Commander Mark" teaching children a variety of drawing techniques as he drew enormous cityscapes. It was very cool.
This coloring book ignites the same feelings as The Secret Cities. It features immersive aerial views of real cities from around the world alongside gorgeously illustrated, Inception-like architectural mandalas. Artist Steve McDonald's beautifully rendered and detailed line work offers bird's-eye perspectives of visually arresting global locales from New York, London, and Paris to Istanbul, Tokyo, and Melbourne, Rio, Amsterdam, and many more. The adult coloring book's distinctive large square format offers absorbingly complex vistas to color, the crisp white pages are conducive to a range of artistic applications, and a middle margin keeps all the artwork fully colorable. Complementing the cityscapes are a selection of mind-bending labyrinthine architectural illustrations for still deeper meditative coloring adventures and imaginative flights of fancy.
Or, as one BV said, "Ten bucks is just a coffee and treat at any cafe. So why not buy a coloring book instead?"
