aa4You may have noticed over the years – or even just over the past several weeks – that I love the great city of Chicago, USA. I love that living here in the Midwest (just across the river from the other great American city of KCMO) that it is just a short flight to take advantage of all the great arts and culture the Windy City has to offer. Much like my weekend trips to NYC from Boston when I lived in the latter for many years in another lifetime. But I digress.

So yeah, I love Chicago and I am also fully onboard with the adult coloring revolution, which makes this week’s Read the perfect find: The Chicago Coloring Book: Iconic Landmarks and Hidden Gems by illustrator Chris Arnold.

About The Chicago Coloring Book: Iconic Landmarks and Hidden Gems by Chris Arnold: “Featuring more than 50 illustrations, The Chicago Coloring Book captures the beauty, history, and art of the Windy City. Take out your pens and pencils and get ready to tour Chicago—from the towering skyscrapers of downtown to the hidden gems tucked away in city neighborhoods. Intricate patterns inspired by architectural motifs, museum exhibits, and local food and fauna offer hours of coloring fun for locals and tourists alike.”

Many of Mr. Arnold’s fine illustrations are of scenes I have seen many times on my visits to Chicago. However, one neat thing is that I have discovered new locations to check out on my next visit – which is a very cool side effect of a coloring book I would say.

The Chicago Coloring Book: Iconic Landmarks and Hidden Gems by Chris Arnold is available from Amazon and other fine book retailers.
