The Portsmouth & Southsea Colouring Book

The Portsmouth & Southsea Colouring book is a collection of 52 original illustrations from around Portsmouth & Southsea for you to colour in. The hand-drawn illustrations take you on a journey around some of the island’s most popular and favourite destinations, from Gunwharf Quays to Old Portsmouth, along Southsea seafront to Eastney and all the way back again. There are plenty of well-known landmarks as well as some hidden gems to discover.

The book is illustrated by me, Sarah Fisher, a graphic designer and illustrator based in Southsea. I have previously illustrated 2 adult colouring books for Cath Kidston which have been extremely popular and have lots of experience in book design and the publishing industry.

The Portsmouth & Southsea Colouring Book is finished and ready to go, and the Kickstarter campaign will raise money to print the first edition. I have found a supplier and once the Kickstarter finishes we are on track to get the books printed and into your hands early in December ready for Christmas. 

The book is perfect for both adults and children and would make a great present. The pages will be printed on a thick, luxury paper stock which is ideal for colouring in, and the cover will be printed on extra thick stock with a smooth, matt lamination finish for extra protection.

Thank you so much for looking at this Kickstarter campaign and I look forward to getting the Portsmouth & Southsea Colouring Book into your hands really soon!

Risks and challenges

The Portsmouth & Southsea Colouring Book is completely illustrated and typeset and the press-ready artwork is ready to go. We have sourced a printer who will print the books at the end of the Kickstarter.

We are hoping to get the books and rewards printed and sent out at the beginning of December, in time for Christmas, as long as there are no unforeseen problems. We are not expecting any delays but these would be communicated to all backers asap should they happen.
