Canadian Geographic has just launched their first-ever Coloring Book Special, retailing for $9.95. This is a category of magazine products that has been quite hot for a few years now. Colouring Canada features 26 greyscale photographs shot by Canadian Geographic’s Photographer-in-Residence, Michelle Valberg.
Here’s a quote from Michelle, off the Canadian Geographic website: “For more than 30 years, I have travelled across this astonishing country capturing images of special people and places. I’ve photographed bison grazing on Saskatchewan’s grasslands, Inuit drum dancing north of the Arctic Circle, the rugged landscapes of Newfoundland and Labrador, and just about everything in between.
And now, for the first time, my images of Canada’s wonderfully wild and open places have been grey-scaled and transformed into a colouring book. Produced in commemoration of Canada’s sesquicentennial, Colouring Canada showcases the great beauty of Canada’s 10 provinces and three territories through some of my favourite images that readers can use to create their own
masterpieces. Urged on by Karen Read, a friend and voracious colourer, I joined forces with Canadian Geographic to create this 26-image colouring book that’s now available on newsstands.” There is a video at this URL.
