Coloured Cities

Adult colouring books are everywhere at the moment, in every book shop, stationary store and all over the internet!  And I can totally see why, my mum gave me my first adult colouring book a year and a half ago as a Christmas present (blogged here) and since then I have accumulated more, including a beautiful mandala book, here.  I’ve grown to really love them!  They are so relaxing to do, something you can pick up whenever you have a spare minute and they are a great quick way to produce something beautiful.

That’s why I was excited to see one based around travel, eeek!  Dream Cities by Rosie Goodwin and Alice Chadwick is made up of beautiful illustrations of cities, some real and some imagined.  They are lovely, intricate designs with cities from all over the world, and others which only belong in a dream world 😉  So, here is a trip around the world through a colouring book…  I’ve photographed some of my favourite, some coloured and some which are waiting to be coloured 🙂DSC03797DSC03798LondonDSC03801AmsterdamDSC03785StockholmDSC03783 DSC03784An Imagined CityDSC03786 DSC03787TokyoDSC03806An imagined cityDSC03790DSC03789DSC03791IstanbulDSC03802A Tree HouseDSC03793DSC03794San FranciscoDSC03803Ice PalaceDSC03795MexicoDSC03805An Underwater CityDSC03792SydneyDSC03804MontrealDSC03807

Have you tried an adult colouring book?  Which of these cities would you love to colour?

  1. Thank you for reminding me that I should take out the colouring book I bought LAST YEAR and actually use it!!! I really love this city one too.. might have to buy another 😉

  2. I’ve been hearing/reading about adult colouring books for awhile and have been curious about them. Any colouring I’ve been doing in the last 4 years or so has been while preparing for class, so usually I’m stressed and/or short on time maybe if I remove that stress and just colour for fun I’ll enjoy it. Anyway that travel colouring book is too cute not to buy, so it’s off to Book Depository I go lol!

  3. OMGGGG SO FUNNNN!!!! How weird!! I’ve been following some artists on Instagram and lately, I really got the urge to do some coloring! This looks like something I want to do so bad right now!! But alas, constant travel in a carry-on does not allow for this. But as soon as I’m settled in Taipei at the end of this year, I’m going to see if I can find some in the local stationary store!
