Colorful Cities (Mar 2016)

Price: $14.95


This coloring book and travel guide features Portland, Oregon'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 and a two-page index for each of the illustrated locations featured in the book. Explorers can travel and color from St. John's Bridge to hiking the 4T trail to Council Crest Park! The locations are whimsically rendered as 31 black and white illustrations, featuring some of Portland's most 'explorable' locations — Burnside Skatepark, Mount Hood, Tilikum Crossing Bridge, Oaks Park Skating Rink, Paul Bunyan Statue, Oregon Zoo, Portland Farmers Market and Powell's City of Books 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.
