Stories of the Castle of Good Hope
Buildings like Cape Town’s City Hall and the old Castle of Good Hope have stories to tell. These are old stories laced with whispered secrets. Some stories are horrific. A few may seem morbid. Many may inspire you. Others will make you think long and hard about life at the tip of Africa. It is important to listen to these stories, even if they are not stories we like or feel close to. They help us identify with the powerful heartbeat of a city like Cape Town.
In this set of colouring pages, detailed line illustrations of the historic Cape Town buildings are coupled with historical tidbits. The illustrations take the form of old postcards. Treat these pages as history or as an appetizer for an actual visit to these locations. Add colour to the black and white line images and the decorative information frames, and turn these pages into a colourful, virtual tour of Cape Town’s best known historic buildings.

Cape Town: Colour the Rainbow Nation
These colouring pages are an extract from the book “Cape Town: Colour the Rainbow Nation” by Pearl R. Lewis. This adult-friendly colouring book celebrates Cape Town in its own unique way. It’s a blend of illustrations that range from the tourist hot spots (like Table Mountain) to the little things that matter to the locals. It also contains factual tidbits and the odd urban legend – just to add a little extra colour to the grey matter. The book is a conversation starter, and makes an excellent gift for ex-patriots, tourists, and local South Africans alike. Take a imaginative tour around Cape Town as you put your coloured pencils to work with this book. (Download a free sampler version of this book here.)
Colour the Rainbow Nation Series
“Cape Town: Colour the Rainbow Nation” is the first in the COLOUR THE RAINBOW NATION series. COLOUR THE RAINBOW NATION is a celebration of all things South African. That includes the people, the places, and the experiences that help us remember the past while we continue to plant seeds of hope for the future. Nelson Mandela once described South Africans as being as intimately attached to the soil of South Africa as Pretoria’s famous jacaranda trees and the mimosa trees of the bushveld. COLOUR THE RAINBOW NATION creates an opportunity for you and your family to celebrate the spirit and heart of South Africa whether you are already rooted in this beautiful country or simply wish you were.
