"A Walk Around Nantucket" is a stunning coloring book for adults created by Scott Widmeyer and Alan Yount and illustrated by local artist Paul McCarthy from Nantucket Carving and Folkart.
A 54 page book that includes 19 iconic scenes from around Nantucket (the three lighthouses, a typical Sconset cottage, the Crooked House in Madaket, the Windmill, and many others). And the pièce de résistance with the Nantucket coloring book is that it will include 16 post cards with exquisite Nantucket scenes also ready for coloring. “Our book is of, by, and for Nantucket, and we are so excited to share it with the community,” noted Widmeyer and Yount.
Adult coloring books have become a popular way to relieve stress and calm down in our digital world of instant gratification. We hope that A Walk Around Nantucket will help visitors and residents alike tap into their inner artist, slow down, and see the island in a new way. The postcards included at the end of the book will let you send your vision out to your friends, opening their eyes to our beautiful little island. So, sit down, turn your phones and computers off, and take “a walk around Nantucket” with your colored pencils, markers, watercolors, or any other medium.
Some of the creator's proceeds from the sales of the Nantucket Coloring Book will go back to the Island's Indepdendent Bookstores Mitchell's + Bookworks!
