Whether you are a local or a visitor, it’s the ideal way to while away a few long lazy holiday afternoons, or to unwind and de-stress after a busy day. Lose yourself in an intricate web of Adelaide icons, in the branches of a jacaranda, diving under the ocean or wandering the banks of the Torrens. The completed coloured images make a perfect gift for overseas friends. Then again, they will probably want a copy of their own to colour from scratch…

This charming and well-researched colouring book also includes postcard versions of the illustrations, ready to colour and send.

As well as being an illustrator, printmaker and writer, Sally Heinrich is an accomplished procrastinator. The illustrations in this book grew out of doodles she created when she really should have been meeting some deadlines. Despite this, she has managed to illustrate more than thirty books and her work has been recognised through fellowships from the Asialink Foundation, The May Gibbs Children’s Literature Trust, Varuna – the Writers’ Centre, Arts SA and the Ian Reed Foundation. Her original artwork and linoprints have been exhibited in Australia and Asia including in the Waterhouse Natural History Art Prize, and is held in collections in many countries.
