This coloring book is very cute. The original paintings are gorgeous and very detailed. Next to them is the blank version to color. Because the designs are so intricate this is definitely a coloring book for an older audience. Accompaning each picture and chosen US city or landmark are a few sentences of information about the location. This book will be a delight to anyone who likes to color, whether they are familiar with the artist or not.
Thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for an ARC in exchange for my honest review.

I am such a fan of this series of colouring books - the National Parks one is my favourite but this is now a close second. As always the images are meticulously detailed without being overwhelming, and take you on a journey through cities in the USA. I love the inclusion of facts about each city and the inspiration images are beautiful.

Many thanks to the author, publisher and Netgalley for providing an ARC of this book in exchange for an unbiased review.

As always these colouring books and great, they have so much detail and look beautiful and would be even more beautiful physically, I think it would make a great gift.

Like many people, I have admired and enjoyed Eric Dowdle’s artwork in other creative forms; specifically, both full and mini sized puzzles. So, naturally, a coloring book of his work was right up my alley! Really enjoyed this ARC and how it permits the reader to engage in their own expression of creativity, while having a frame of reference in the original work… also, really appreciated the little nuggets of info and facts accompanying the different landmarks and locations depicted. Many thanks to the author/artist, NetGalley, and publisher for the opportunity to review this ARC!
