Since I was a teenager, I’ve desperately missed coloring. For a long time, unless you were under 7 years-old, coloring wasn’t something cool kids did. Recently, that started to change. With the introduction of coloring books for Game of Thrones, Sherlock, Harry Potter and Doctor Who, it was only a matter of time before I got back into them. Whether it’s an inexpensive coloring book from Wallgreens or a fancy actual book, it’s time to break out the colored pencils and draw.
In Won-Sun Jang’s new book, Cats in Paris: A Magical Coloring Book, those of us who love to add color to any situation will follow a cat as it travels through the wonders of Paris landmarks and then goes into the realm of cat life. The first 1/4th of the book is devoted to tourism. From the Monmartre to Shakespeare and Company, a gorgeous cat challenges readers to not only color but see the sites of one of the world’s most beautiful cities. The book then becomes a series of pages dominated by cat-specific patterns, cat graphics and even a great print of cats wearing glasses.
Cats in Paris is fantastic whether you just love cats or want an illustrated look at “the City of Lights,” this coloring book is designed for the adult colorist. The binding is more like that of a book than our traditional newsprint coloring pages. Coloring the pages works best with colored pencils, so many sure to keep a pencil sharpener handy. There are many small spaces and intricate designs.
Cats in Paris: A Magical Coloring Book is now available from Watson-Guptill Publications.
