It seems that coloring books have become all the rage lately, I see adult coloring books on display in book stores, curio shops, even the grocery store. A nice idea for those who need practice staying inside the lines or for anyone needing a little mind relaxing chill out time. But what about a cool coloring book for the GeoGeek, I mean after all, most GeoGeeks were likely teased endlessly in college for spending so much time coloring all those maps and graphics that go along with the required courses to get that degree in Geography or GIS.
Well, thanks to Gretchen Peterson, cartographer and author of the very popular CARTOGRAPHER’S TOOLKIT, GIS CARTOGRAPHY and COLORS FOR MAPS there’s now a real coloring book for the die-hard geographer, wanna-be geographer, or just about anyone who really digs maps, cartography, or just like to color and enjoy spatial awesomeness – enter CITY MAPS: A coloring book for adults. About the book… “With over 40 bird’s-eye view maps to color from all the largest metropolitan areas in the world, you’ll get plenty of cartographic practice. These amazing city maps feature real building and road outlines at scale. Close-up locations such as the Arc de Triomphe in Paris, the Grand Canal in Venice, and Central Park in New York City are included.”
Sharpen up those pencils and enjoy! You can find the book on Amazon
