The Martin Parr Coloring Book!
Photography and pop-culture buffs, get out your crayons and colored pencils! Martin Parr’s colorful and tongue-in-cheek photographs—his comedy of contemporary manners—have been transformed into a coloring book. Here is Parr’s affectionate and hilarious catalogue of human foibles—our bad fashion choices, messy foods, trashy souvenirs and the tourists who buy them, and all the often-overlooked silly details of our daily life—rendered afresh. The book’s eighty pages are packed with the most iconic and beloved Parr images, made into original drawings by Jane Mount, offering hours of coloring entertainment, as well as Parr’s witty take on the coloring book craze. Be inspired to create a new version of a classic Parr—sunbathers in Speedos, tea-drinkers and rainbow cakes, socks with sandals—and in the process, experience his vision in a new way. A riotous take on the eccentricities and peculiarities of today’s world, for all fans of Parr’s work, and an original contribution to the coloring genre!
