The book is filled with beautifully detailed line drawings of amazing buildings and structures from around the world. Enthusiasts can get colouring on Prague’s Astronomical Clock and Russia’s St. Basil’s Cathedral, and then turn their hand to iconic structures like the Eiffel Tower, London’s Tower Bridge and the Chrysler Building.

It’s one of those games that is sure to be enjoyed by architecture-enthusiasts of any age.
