Map Lovers, This New Coloring Book is Perfect

A bird's-eye view tour of global cities

And the adult coloring book craze continues...with another title sure to please all the architecture, urban planning, and map enthusiasts out there. Masterminded by GIS and map design consultant Gretchen Peterson, City Maps offers exactly what it sounds like it should: 44 aerial maps of global cities, in black outlines you can color. These pages vary in scale and levels of detail, and feature urban hotspots like New York City's Central Park, downtown Los Angeles, the Forbidden Palace in Beijing, and the Grand Canal in Venice. Totally two-dimensional without instantly recognizable landmarks, however, they provide an unfamiliar but fascinating look at the patterns of major cities.
