Instead of mindlessly scrolling through Instagram after a long day at the office, why not unwind by doing a little coloring? Yes, that’s right, every child’s favorite pastime is now being marketed to adults. As Business Insider reported earlier this week, the two best-selling books on Amazon right now are adult coloring books–”Secret Garden” and “Enchanted Forest” by Scottish illustrator Johanna Basford. The books feature nature scenes and geometric patterns of flowers, trees, and woodland creatures.

But for those of us who prefer analyzing floor plans to arranging flowers, there’s another adult coloring book called “Fantastic Cities.” Created by artist Steve McDonald, it “features immersive aerial views of real cities from around the world alongside gorgeously illustrated, Inception-like architectural mandalas.”

Some of the nearly 60 urban locales represented are of London, Paris, Istanbul, Tokyo, Amsterdam, and of course New York. The book offers a distinctive large square format (you may not even need your reading glasses!) with “mind-bending labyrinthine architectural illustrations.”

“Fantastic Cities” will be released in July, but it’s available now for pre-order.
