“… In Klondike Colours, in which each page features original line drawings by Canadian artist Andrée Bélanger, modern-day tourists with cameras and RVs explore the Klondike alongside stampede-era prospectors and gussied-up dancehall girls. The ghosts of Dawson past roam every page, just as they stroll the streets of the real-world Dawson in period (or not-so-period) costume, and sit rustily inside display cases filled with aesthetically pleasing ye olden goods. …”

And more goodness!

Thanks for the shout-out Becky! It was so lovely meeting you and getting to show you around town a bit!

 

Which do you like best? Give it a “like” if it’s your fave! Email me your Klondike Colours art, and I’ll add it to the gallery. (Or if yours is here and unattributed, please, let me know.)

 

Gallery of colouring!

First launch photo-with “new” cover art!

There are many more photos to come, and a few videos… but for your first glance, below we have one of our young volunteers sporting his Klondike Colours tshirt, and showing off his coloured page! This young man was our excellent Colouring Station Supervisor, and did a bang up job with that and many other launch tasks… and he did a great job colouring to boot! Thanks Bo!

Which page to sneak a peek of?

We’ve got another two weeks or so until the actual books are in our hands… would anyone like to get an advance look at one of the pages? Andree did them all as double-page spreads, and all as Dawson City (and area) images combining present and future. Which would you like to see?
