I remember rolling my eyes with exasperation as a child when given yet
another boring colouring-in sheet of a rabbit or Disney character.
Avoid the predictable with this colouring-in book with black-line
pictures from leading modern artists such as
Robert Mapplethorpe, John Lurie and Sol LeWitt.
Instead of mindless
focus on colouring between the lines, these images encourage artistic
consideration worlds apart from mainstream animation, transporting you
to pleasant alternate realities.
The proceeds go to the non-profit organization RxArt,
which sets up art installations
in hospitals for the benefit of patients.
Not only are you presenting your child with a work of useable art, it’s
also a feel good buy. 112 pages are provided for your colouring
along with 4 pages of colour stickers.

for US$12 plus shipping.
