All one hundred branches (plus two bookmobiles!) of the Toronto Public Library appear in this whimsical colouring book.
Within these pages you will find a love letter to the Toronto Public Library, created by urban geographer Daniel Rotsztain. Rotsztain’s quest to illustrate all the branches of North America’s most used library system took him up river valleys, through city parks, over highways, and along the lakeshore. In this book, Rotsztain invites you along to explore the city’s unique neighbourhoods and architecture through its temples to books, from the vast to the humble, with nothing but your own coloured pencils and pens.
Daniel Rotsztain, a.k.a. the Urban Geographer, is a freelance artist, writer, and cartographer, whose work has appeared in Spacing and the Globe and Mail. He lives in Toronto.
