Lissie Hollis, the creator behind Nottingham's first adult colouring book

An adult colouring book featuring famous local landmarks is in the pipeline for later this year.

Lissie Hollis, 22, of Frederick Grove, Lenton, came up with the idea of a landmark colouring book after being at an American summer camp and drawing local attractions for the children she worked with.

The book includes famous locations around the city including the Robin Hood Statue, the famous caves and iconic Market Square.

The University of Nottingham Architecture graduate hopes to have the 20 iconic drawings published by Spring this year.

She said: “Adult colouring is really popular at the moment so I wanted to break in to that market.”

“Art is a therapy for me, it’s very relaxing and gives me plenty of confidence so I hope it does the same for other people.”

Lissie, who was originally a painter as a child, discovered fine line drawing at University whilst studying for her degree and has previously appeared at art festivals – most recently drawing a landscape of Melbourne in Derbyshire.

She said: “People who saw the work were really interested in spotting their houses or places they might know.”

She hopes her work will be picked up by students who are looking for memorabilia of their time spent in the city, or tourists who are visiting the city.

Alongside this, she is also hoping to turn her drawings in to post cards.

In future, Lissie hopes to eventually release colouring books of several other cities and towns in the UK for her series, which will be called ‘Fine Lines’ – with Nottingham being the first released.
