Colorful Cities (Apr 2018)

Price: $14.95


This coloring book and travel guide features Havana, Cuba's famous landmarks and hidden gems, plus a few captivating day trips. Exploring is made easy as the book begins with a map of the city followed by a corresponding index in both Spanish and English for each of the illustrated locations featured in the book. Explorers can travel and color from the colonial cobblestones of Old Havana to the musicians playing along the Malecón! The locations are whimsically rendered as 30 black and white illustrations, featuring some of Havana's most 'explorable' locations—the antique books of Plaza de Armas, the moats and cannons of Castillo de la Real Fuerza, Coppelia Ice Cream Shop, Playa Boca Ceiga, Coco Taxi riding throughout the city, Parque Central to name a few. The pages are printed on one side of high-quality paper to eliminate next image peek through as well as to reduce marker and gel pen bleed. Pages can easily go from book to art display, as each is perforated at the top for seamless removal. This book is designed, illustrated and printed 100% in the USA.
