It seems like everywhere I look, new books are popping up and people are getting into mindful colouring. There are even colouring parties (just add wine!)
If either of those sound like you (or if you're just looking for a bumper book of designs), you might like "Color Me Calm".
Written by Lacy Mucklow and illustrated by Angela Porter, "Color Me Calm" features 100 pages designed for the adult colouring enthusiast as well as a little insight into why colouring is relaxing, how to use the book as part of your mindfulness routine and even which colours are calm! It's like a guided journey into the adult colouring experience.
The single-sided pages ensure that colouring with your favourite markers is possible. Yay! While the detailed designs and variety of styles make sure that you don't get bored.
I will admit that some of the pages are a little juvenile for my taste (and there are a handful of designs which are puzzlingly fuzzy) but in a book of 100 designs, I don't expect to love everything and the author doesn't expect you to either. The wide array of styles was designed to help you pick and choose what kind of subject matter you find calming to colour.
I'm pretty pleased that "Color Me Calm" helped me narrow down my colouring preferences - mandalas all the way! (And I know just what do do with my finished pages!)
Color Me Calm is published by Race Point Publishing. You can find it at (and the other titles in the Color Me series) at major booksellers like Amazon. This book was provided to me by the publisher but all images and opinions are my own.
