More than simply a colouring book, Local Colour – Adelaide explores many of the things and places that make Adelaide unique.
Whether you’re a local or a tourist, it’s the ideal way to while away a few long lazy holiday afternoons, or to unwind and de-stress after a busy day. Lose yourself in an intricate web of Adelaide icons, in the branches of a jacaranda, diving under the ocean or wandering the banks of the Torrens. The completed coloured images make a perfect gift for overseas friends. Then again, they will probably want a copy of their own to colour from scratch . . .
Also includes postcard versions of the illustrations, ready to colour and send.
