Review – The Colouring Book for Grown-Ups

The Colouring Book for Grown-UpsThe Colouring Book for Grown-Ups, Arcturus Publishing

Quite a hefty collection of pictures to colour here, and an amazing variety, from twee fairies to Chinese dragons and back through mandalas to flowers. It really is just colouring, with no doodling or mindfulness advice, though there is a bit of advice on colouring and using your imagination in the front, which I duly ignored. I’m also duly ignoring the fairies and so on; I really prefer to colour patterns, I’ve found. There’s still a fair amount of that in here.

The paper is quite thin, so if you’re going to use felt tips or markers, you need to put a piece of paper between the pages to protect the next design. Unlike some other books, though, it doesn’t have designs on both side of the pages, so you don’t end up ruining anything as long as you remember to put a piece of paper behind the page you’re colouring.

Rating: 4/5

  1. I bought The Enchanted Forest colouring book a while ago. It has really thick paper so maybe you’d like it better. Not sure about the patterns though… I mean, it has patterns but they’re in the shape of animals for example.
    Nevertheless, I love this current wave of “adult” colouring books 😀

    • I’m not as fond of those, for some reason. I keep looking at them, but… I don’t know!

      Me too! I like the “Creative Colouring For Grown-Ups” range, which has vintage patterns, Japanese patterns, a typography one…

  2. Ooh, this looks pretty! I kind of like the idea that the pages are only one sided! I’m ENDLESSLY annoyed that the Enchanted Forest one is very leakable. *sigh*
