Mennonite Colouring Book
by Johan Wiebe

This unique colouring book offers a special glimpse into the life of German-Mexican members of the Mennonite community. Here is a range of colour-hungry images that summon the joyful everyday for this cultural band. From the strenuous industry of the fields to the simple pleasures of rest, a humble bird to a boy relaxing on a pile of hay, author Johan Wiebe has collected visual representations of his memories growing up in rural Cuauhtémoc Chihuahua for modern children to expand upon. Indeed, the series of pictures was originally published in his hometown in the early ’90s. With this endeavour, Wiebe extends the offer of this joyful variation on contemporary colouring books to a wider audience.

Johan Wiebe lives in Reinfeld, Manitoba, with his wife, Helena Wiebe. There, he channels graphic memories from his life growing up in a Mennonite community in rural Mexico for the benefit of contemporary children with poised crayons.
