I have fond memories of opening a new box of Crayola Crayons on Christmas morning. Do you remember the smell and the feeling of seeing a box of pristine unbroken sharp tipped crayons with their perfect untorn labels? I enjoyed coloring images in coloring books because I was good at it. I was able to stay in the lines. I was in my own little world when I was coloring.

  2. I’ve been coloring b/w posters of ink drawings for years. but when I ran outy of posters I looked at the myriad of adult coloring books. I’ve been severly disappointed.

    Most are of fractals or madelas or other geometric patterns. Nothing with any meaning. These are marketed as therapeurtic coloring.

    All that I’ve found have the illustrations to the edge of the paper. No room to frame even without a matte.

    But these are worse! That curved edge makes it really hard to frame. And there’s no indication that they can be torn out easily.

    And I shudder to think that there might be lines or a grid on the verso side of the image.

    The size is right for doodlers, but not for serious adult colorers.

  3. Coloring books now attracts grownups. It’s real that coloring books are really a brand-new method to de-stress. Coloring can be utilized as a treatment, it is usually a method of helping the people to cope in circumstance that causes you to be stress. Coloring has actually been my way to relax, as a working mother i am consistently stressed in my work and also after work at house with all the stuff that i need to do, coloring has actually been my way of releasing my concerns on my everyday life. I have this adult coloring book that helps me to stay away from stress even just for a moment. You and your readers might want to have one of this adult coloring book too.
