The Magical City is a brand new colouring book by award-winning illustrator Lizzie Mary Cullen, exploring the hidden magic of cities. Open your mind to the hidden wonder of urban landscapes across the world with this beautifully intricate colouring book. From London to Luxor, follow cobbled pavements through winding streets, look up at skyscrapers soaring to the skies, and gaze over rooftops and dreaming spires. And as you colour and doodle your way through these illustrations, you'll find hidden details emerge not only on the page but also in the world around you.

The Magical City – Colouring Book by Lizzie Mary Cullen

The Magical City is the first colouring book for adults by illustrator Lizzie Cullen.

The cover is card with silver foil highlights and folds out.   Although there is pre printing in pink, yellow and green on the cover there are still plenty of spaces for you to colour if you wish.  The inside of the cover folds out and you can colour all of the black and white line work.

The book is interactive and encourages you to explore the magical city and find animals hiding within.    As usual, with this type of book, if that proves too elusive there is an answer key at the end.

The illustrations are all printed on white paper.    The paper is good quality but is not overly thick.    I would test your markers on the answer key at the back of the book to see if they show through or bleed before starting a picture.      The drawings are of crazy cities and buildings that have a distorted, twisted look and feel about them.       The Magical City is printed on both sides of the paper.  Most illustrations are full page and go to the spine of the book, making colouring in these tight spaces difficult.    The book does lay flat with some careful pushing.

About the author


I'm Lea and I love everything to do with coloring! If it is a coloring book, a poster or even a bookmark that you can color in, I'm all over it. Of course, a girl has to have some pencils, markers, gelly rolls, pastels and what not to make those pictures pretty and I love those as well.

Whilst my coloring style lacks skill, I am enthusiastic and focused on enjoying the moment and having fun.
