These kind of books seem to be everywhere right now, but we think the Hip Hop Coloring Book by Mark 563 stand out from the crowd.
Out in April (but on pre-order now), this 64-page publication is described as an original coloring book for all ages. Those last few words are important here. When it comes to hip hop, you can never be quite sure if the content is completely child-friendly!
The book features a selection of Mark 563’s own illustrative takes on some of hip-hop’s most important figures, legendary rappers from the East to the West coast, all of whom are just waiting to be coloured in.
I guess an interest in hip hop might help, but the cartoon-like imagery is so strong that it isn’t really a deal breaker. Essentially this is just a quirky colouring book. It is published by Dokument Press and is available on pre-order for £6.99.
