<sh>Reston Coloring Book

<bt>The Reston Historic Trust published a coloring book last week, entitled "A Child Looks at Reston." The book features line drawings by Reston artist Pat Macintyre and text by Reston Historic Trust president Bill Nicoson.

The book depicts the birth of Reston as Robert E. Simon Jr. surveys the land that would become Lake Anne Village Center. The book demonstrates Reston's diversity, with illustrations of both quiet neighborhoods and the bustling Town Center. Reston's schools and sports are celebrated in the book. One theme represented in the book is that "life in Reston is healthy," with drawings of electric-powered lake barges and ice skating at the Town Center.

The coloring book will go on sale for $5 at the Reston Museum and Shop in the Lake Anne Village Center when it reopens for business on Sept. 4. The book can be pre-ordered by calling 703-709-7700.
