Here’s a new addition to the coloring book craze that will have architecture lovers picking up their colored pencils and markers straight away. The Brutalist Colouring Book by Brussels-based art director and graphic designer Marc Thomasset is just that: a small coloring book featuring line drawings of iconic Brutalist buildings including William Pereira’s Geisel Library and the Marnix building by Godron Bunschaft of SOM.

Thomasset calls the coloring book his “personal project,” which was borne out of a love for the 1970 CBR building designed by Belgian architect Constantin Brodsky. He first glimpsed the building as a child from the back of his mother’s car. The result is a 32-page booklet measuring 5.8 by 8.2 inches and printed on thick recycled paper. Each copy of the first edition printing of 500 is numbered. It’s available for €12.00, or approximately $13.
