This unique colouring book features immersive aerial views of real cities from around the world alongside gorgeously illustrated,Inception like architectural mandalas. Artist Steve McDonald's beautifully rendered and detailed line work offers bird's-eye perspectives of visually arresting global locales from New York, London, and Paris to Istanbul, Tokyo, and Melbourne, Rio, Amsterdam, and many more. The adult colouring book's distinctive large square format offers absorbingly complex vistas to colour, the crisp white pages are conducive to a range of artistic applications, and a middle margin keeps all the artwork fully colourable. Complementing the cityscapes are a selection of mind-bending labyrinthine architectural illustrations for still deeper meditative colouring adventures and imaginative flights of fancy.
