Another Buffalo coloring book has hit the streets, and this time the buildings that are featured are some of the area’s most iconic structures. From the Richardson Towers to the Electric Tower, the magnificent structures have been stripped of color, so that architecture fans can create their own fanciful takes on the historic landmarks.
“I began making the coloring book as a small personal art project just for fun,” says artist Mitchell Grosofsky. “After some research and finding out that while there was an Allentown coloring book, none existed around what I was focusing on: the iconic buildings of Buffalo. Being that Buffalo has had a huge upswing over the past years and locals are very passionate about the city, I began to think that a book was tangible and went for it.”
The Welcome to Buffalo: The Coloring Book is considered “The quintessential coloring book for lovers of Buffalo, New York.” The book features 32 drawings, found on perforated pages. There is also detailed information pertaining to each landmark. Finally, the entire work is produced and printed right here in Buffalo, NY, making this an absolutely essential book for whimsical fans of the Queen City on the Lake.
Examples of drawings include: Central Terminal, City Hall, Darwin D. Martin House, Electric Tower, Guaranty Building, Hotel Lafayette, Peace Bridge, Richardson Olmsted Complex, Shea’s Performing Arts Center, and Silo City.
The book is currently available on .etsy, as well as at Bflo Gallery and Gift Shop, Vidler’s, Talking Leaves, and Wegmans (coming soon). Stay up to date with Grosofsky’s future publishing endeavors on Facebook.
