Coloring books aren’t just for children anymore. They have graduated from kids’ activities to a hobby adults can enjoy. With a dizzying choice of subjects, from historic locations to floral scenes and an endless variety of designs, Haworth chooses a wonderful city in Color Chicago, beautifully detailed to appeal to the tastes of a new audience. Color Chicago offers a tour of a beloved city from the artist’s unique perspective, a sample of historical buildings and cultural scenes that make the city an unforgettable place. There are twenty full-page illustrations, even a panoramic view of Millennium Park in the gatefold. Vibrant landscapes and architectural landmarks, including Wrigley Field and
the Sears Tower, illustrate a bustling city in black and white, needing only color to bring it to life.
Haworth captures the essence of Chicago, street scenes where strolling couples or raucous families enjoy the sights and cultural attractions. The third in Haworth’s series (Color
London; Color Paris), Color Chicago is nicely bound with a sturdy cover, the perfect prescription for a stress-filled day or a leisurely way to spend a quiet afternoon. Coloring books for grown-ups have come of age, perfect birthday or thank-you gifts for friends--and an extra copy for you. (Just between you and me, I am finding it difficult to review Color Chicago: I seem to have slipped into childhood and all I want to do is color!)
