City Maps coloring book for adults
Recently adults all over the world have suddenly started to go crazy over coloring books. This coloring book fad started a few years back, when “Secret Garden – An Inky Treasure Hunt and Coloring Book” by Scottish illustrator Johanna Basford was published in 2013.
These days, you will find adult themed coloring books almost everywhere and featuring a wide range of themes from Harry Potter to Star Wars.
Now Gretchen Peterson, a well known author in the cartography world has brought this latest craze to the geospatial community. Coloring maps can be very relaxing, especially when it is for fun and you do not have to worry about the end product.
So there was this one time when I said Why are there no map coloring books? And everyone was like Yeah why not?!
