This summer, when you’re relaxing sans electronics, follow the adult-coloring-book trend and grab a local version with those free hands. Color ATL’s second edition (the first was a hit in 2016) features works by 42 local artists, including Jeremy Brown, Catlanta, HENSE, and Tiny Doors ATL. For every book sold, the editors—artist William Massey, illustrator Amber Guinn, and designer Connor Dwyer—donate one through various local charities to someone facing hardship in the city. “We released Vol. 2 because there are far too many incredible Atlanta creatives to spotlight and celebrate than we could fit in one book,” Massey says. The matte nine-by-12-inch volume makes for a graphic coffee table book—or you can rip out your finished piece for a city-pride framer. $20, coloratl.com
