A Very Yorkshire Colouring Book: Yorkshire illustrator publishes a new book celebrating the region with landscape photos of Leeds, York, Sheffield, Yorkshire Dales, Whitby, Scarborough as well as famous faces such as Halifax’s Ed Sheeran
Ms Dellow was born in Barnsley and illustrates for the BBC’s Tiny Happy People.
She said: “I have wanted to create this book for a very long time. People from Yorkshire are always so proud of their heritage and to shout about it.
“I love the county and how many beautiful places it has to visit in just one day - that’s why I thought it would work so well in a colouring book.
“My favourite pages have to be the ones focused on coastal destinations because I am a huge fan of the Yorkshire seaside.”
Ms Dellow’s previous colouring book was centred around the city of Sheffield, and thousands of copies have been sold since its release five years ago.
The new Yorkshire version also features pages dedicated to famous faces from the region, such as Sheffield’s pioneering female astronaut Helen Sharman OBE and Olympian Dame Jessica Ennis-Hill.
Illustrations of Dame Judi Dench, who grew up near York, and Halifax-born singer Ed Sheeran can also be coloured in.
The illustrator, now aged 37, is a graduate of the University of Huddersfield, said: “There’s been a huge rise of interest in adult colouring in the last few years.
“It is now an established wellbeing hobby and people have embraced it as a way to switch off from screens or the stress of the world.
“I hope the book makes people remember how much they love Yorkshire, and how lucky we all are to live here.”
The first print run of A Very Yorkshire Colouring Book is now on sale for £7.
Other locations featured inside the book include Saltaire, a World Heritage Site near Bradford, as well as Ms Dellow’s home city of Sheffield and the famous Humber Bridge close to Hull.
The book can be bought from the Curated Makers stores at York Designer Outlet and inside Meadowhall.
It is also available at the two Sheffield Makers shops at Hunter’s Bar and in the Winter Garden and on the Etsy website.
