Color the World as you Wish


A propeller of the recent trend of adult coloring books, Splendid Cities is filled with illustrations of dream-like cityscapes and landmarks around the world.

Next time you’re looking to relax, consider some crayons. Publisher Little, Brown and Company has introduced a new series of four travel-inspired coloring books for adults, with Splendid Cities and Secret Paris released in June, and Secret New York and Secret Tokyo due out in October. Billed as calming stress-relievers, their penned outlines of landmarks and cityscapes, gardens and neighborhoods, and scenes of quaint street life are transporting and intricately artistic—and that’s even before color is added (US$16). —Gabrielle Lipton
