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 tourists and South Africans alike. Take a imaginative tour around Cape Town when you put your coloured pencils to work with this book. (Download a FREE SAMPLER version of the book here.)
You can purchase the complete paperback version (ISBN 978-1-365-01811-4) of this from Cape Town’s very own online bookstore: Megabooks, or from the international bookstore, Lulu. Find other retailers and read more about this book in the BOOKS section of this website.
“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: the people, the places, and the experiences that help us remember the past as 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.
