Travel with pencils!

Smart colouring book series for kids and their parents - created and published by two artists
Our Story
This series of books was created by two artists, Alina and Katya. And we are completely in love with writing, making illustrations, and of course, travelling.

In 2019 we launched the project 'Travel with Pencils!' with a book about Amsterdam. This was just the beginning of an exciting journey through the most beautiful cities in Europe. Now we are about to release two new books about Barcelona and The Netherlands.

We tell stories about inspiring cities, their culture, and language. And famous artists who lived there. Our illustrations are made in black ink and printed on thick uncoated paper so that they can be easily coloured in.

Right now, whilst so many of our travel plans have been put on hold, we believe that books and creativity can bring us beyond country borders. We believe in imagination and the power of stories! Let's Travel with Pencils!
