Lovely Things: The Best in Travel Coloring Books

I'm not an Amazon affiliate; sometimes I think I should be, given the time spent on their site buying things I need and want, doing research, checking prices, and window shopping. 

One of my purchases last year was this coloring book filled with inspirational messages. 


And it got me thinking. Are there coloring books that are inspired by the great cities and landmarks of the world?

Why, yes, there are. You can color your way around the world. 

Here's what I found. All images are courtesy of Amazon. 

1. World Traveler Coloring Book


This travel inspired coloring book features the famous landmarks, from the Taj Mahal to the Mayan pyramids, the Great Wall of China to the Dutch windmills, and much in between.

2. Amazing Cities, Volume 1 and 2


This series features the great cities of the world. Using freehand drawings, this book shows locales in Germany, Hungary, Venice, Jerusalem, Saint Petersburg, and more. 

3. Color New York City, Volume 1


Fans of Gotham can color their way through the Big Apple. This coloring book features popular New York City attractions, such as Grand Central Station, Central Park, Times Square, the Chrysler Building, and many more. 

4. Travel Between the Lines


This coloring book, designed "for globetrotters and daydreamers" features 47 cityscapes and scenes across Europe, Asia, and the Americas, including Paris, Guatemala, Colombia, Argentina, Prague, and many more. 

5. Discover Paris: Destination Relaxation


For the Francophile, there is Discover Paris, which features famous Parisian themes and landmarks, such as Pont Neuf and the Eiffel Tower. 

There were other coloring books as well, featuring areas such as Maine, the Pacific Northwest, and cities such as San Francisco and Venice. If your favorite city hasn't been featured, wait a while...it seems that this genre is exploding. 

Do you have any coloring books? What city would you like to see featured?

  1. I'm a big fan of adult colouring books - they have legitimized what a lot of us thought we were all alone liking. The cities ones are really cute but I'm still a fan of Johanna Basford's books

    I jumped on the colouring book wagon at Christmas when someone got me one as a present and I love it. It's so relaxing and it's nice to do something creative.

  16. I like the ones that aren't too intricate. Otherwise, I feel stressed trying to differentiate the colors in ways that make sense. Sometimes, I'm all about the design, and other times I need a Disney coloring book. :-)

  18. They are really fun. The Inspiration book is fun, but it's quite intricate. I can do it in small doses; other times I just need a Finding Nemo coloring book. :-)
