Read: The Indie Rock Coloring BookAugust 14, 2009
Okay, maybe that should be ‘Color,’ not ‘Read,’ as we take a break from our serious-verging-on-academic commentary. Just got my copy of The Indie Rock Coloring Book, from Montreal’s Yellow Bird Project, who work with artists raise money for charity. It has beautifully whimsical illustrations by Andy J. Miller to color, and is replete with activities to amuse small children, such as “Find all the birds in Devendra‘s beard and color them yellow.” and “See what’s written in the stars by connecting them to one another!” Of course, there are jokes that are pretty much for grown-ups, such as a maze with the instructions, “Help Kevin Drew avoid the ladies, Brendan Canning miss the wall, and Feist dodge the million-dollar solo contracts so they can reunite for a new Broken Social Scene record!”
Buy a copy for the indie rock-loving child (or parent) in your life here.
