Colouring in for grown-ups: Colour Me Good Chairs by I Love Mel

Colour Me Good chairs

Colouring books get a surprisingly strong showing on Retro To Go, from the likes of Piper Gates and I Love Mel. The latter is back with a title that's bound to appeal to design fans, Colour Me Good Chairs


While previous I Love Mel titles have tended to focus on pop culture, be that of the 1980s or the 1990s, this one, apparently is a "sophisticated colouring book". Its 36 pages are full of some of the world's most desirable chair designs, from the likes of Mies van der Rohe, Verner Panton, Hans Wegner, Arne Jacobsen and Charles & Ray Eames.

It's entirely up to you how accurate or creative you want to get with the colouring in, but design buffs may want to note that each illustration is accompanied by some information about when, how and why each chair was made. 

And, priced at £7.50, it's certainly a lot cheaper than one of the real things.
