All of us have bet on what we've seen in pop culture, racing to our phones to prove our point faster than our companions. This book might answer some of the more confusing or interesting of them all. Cinemaps uses movies and their stories to completely map out characters' journeys in a unique and artistic way.
Part nostalgia and part art project, this book is the perfect example of something you want to have on your coffee table. From The Princess Bride to Shaun of the Dead, it links characters' actions with a type of rainbow bridge you can follow. The style changes a bit from movie to movie but still slightly retains an 8 bit video game feel to the graphics.
I would highly recommend this for movie buffs of any age.

Filled with styles from a multitude of ages, this coloring book brings a culture and its elegance to the pages of a coloring book in a sophisticated package.
The book has a ribbon bookmark and elastic band to keep everything nice and tidy when you aren't coloring. The pages are printed front and back, which may or may not be a preference to some. I personally like the compactness of it since it makes it easy to keep track of your work and keeps the pages bound together, even if you've torn them out.
The art ranges from fashion, city streets, buildings, to patterns, so there's a little bit of something for everyone. I would recommend it for a middle school or high school gift book.
