Color-in Book

This book is part of the "Color-in Series" in that I simply color-in certain images I find. There is a comfort and safety in coloring between lines - boundaries are already set, but you have the freedom to do what you wish within those boundaries. It's rather reminiscent of childhood.
The book itself was printed in the 1969 and titled Urban Planning Aspects of Water pollution Control. The only connection I can see between the subject and coloring-in is the desire to change something rather stale into an almost decorative object. To make it rough and inconsistent - like nature.

These are just a few of the images.

"sludge, lagoons, and a whale"
