10 Best Adult Coloring Books Of All Time

Best Adult Coloring Books

Anxiety is a feeling of constant nervousness, an unpleasant feeling and apprehension about an uncertain outcome. Some of the symptoms include palpitations, irritation and agitation along with tension headaches. To feel anxious is a normal emotion and we do not acknowledge this problem at times and live in constant fear of the unknown. However there is an easy solution to this problem. No need for a therapist or medication when you have an easy at home remedy. The coloring books for adults. We need to widen our horizon and discard the idea that coloring is only for children. It is scientifically proven that adult coloring books have had positive outcomes and they soothe and de-stress anxiety sufferers. These books have intricate designs of different patterns that can be colored in using different vivid colored pencils. The ambiance needs to be a relaxing and silent atmosphere or very light music in the background (my personal favorite- The Archduke Trio by Beethoven). Moreover, these books are not just for anxious people, I enjoy them after a tiring day just to relax myself. It is the perfect sweet escape.

1. Calming Colouring: Nature Patterns by Graham Leslie McCallum
This book includes thick pages with delicately designed nature inspired patterns. The artist and designer, Graham McCallum, has created a graphic view of the trees and leaves that have a soothing effect on the person. As statistically stated, the color green is most well recognized by the human eye and therefore coloring in leaves the color green really focuses the mind on the different shades of green.(Buy)

2. Animorphia by Kerby Rosanes
This is the perfect book for all the animal lovers. Not only does it allow you to color in your favorite animals but it also has some ‘search spots’ where there are illustrations within illustrations and the human mind gets preoccupied into the world of animorphia. This is the perfect way to take a break and get involved into some art so pick up your coloring pencils!(Buy)

3. Dream Cities by Rosie, Chadwick, Alice Goodwin
If you are a travel/tourism enthusiast (like me) and want to nothing but travel the world then the coloring book of dream cities is the way to go. You’ll come across pages that’ll include cityscapes, landmarks and landscapes that you’ll easily recognize. This book also includes a fun activity of a mini treasure hunt for finding extra images with their detailed illustrations.(Buy)

4. Cats: 70 designs to help you de-stress by Hamlyn
This book is simply about seventy feline-inspired designs that are specifically designed for cat-lovers. The best way to calm down would be to color in your favorite animal with detailed colors. This will keep your mind occupied with something you would absolutely adore getting involved in, even for those of who aren’t kitty fans can enjoy the beautiful patterns on these heavy-duty pages.(Buy)

5. Enchanted Forest: An Inky Quest & Coloring Book by Johanna Basford
Probably of one of the most popular illustrators in the market of adult coloring books, Johana Basford, who is also famous for her successful secret garden coloring books. As the name suggests an inky adventure implying that ink can be used as some people have had trouble with in other coloring books. The paper quality used is excellent and pens and ink markers can definitely be used. The enchanted forest is everything you would find in a perfect fairytale story, a woodland, greenery, a thick forest and of course the way to the enchanted locked castle.(Buy)

6. Harry Potter Coloring Book
The paper qualities of this book may vary depending on the different outlets so make sure you use an authentic source to either shop online or buying off of a store. The book is obviously Harry Potter theme based with images realistically drawn from the film or just illustrations in detail as we have imagined it from how it has be described in the book. The images move on from the most loved and popular characters of Harry, Ron, Hermione, and Dumbledore to the most unwanted characters like Malfoy and Peter. It also includes images of the persona non grata; you guessed it, Lord Voldemort. Obviously the book targets the Harry Potter fans but I would recommend it to those who want to escape into a world of fantasy, magic and enchantment.(Buy)

7. The Official A Game of Thrones Coloring Book by George R. R Martin
I am a staunch follower of the game of thrones series and we all know there have been books and a television series as well. The game of thrones can be addictive to be honest so I wouldn’t be surprised if this coloring book casts a spell upon you too. The characters of the series are famous worldwide whether you’re a fan of the show or not I’m sure you’re familiar with Khaleesi, Starks, Cersi and a few other popular names. People might find this a bit odd to use this book to soothe someone as the show itself is so violent however the bold colors, the favorite characters and most certainly the dragons will keep your mind full. Therefore grab a coffee and a copy of this book because ‘winter is coming’!(Buy)

8. The Magical City by Lizzie Mary Cullen
What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you think about a magical city? Cobbled pavements, urban neighborhoods, hidden city and a lot of magic? That’s exactly what you will find in this coloring book illustrated by the award winning Lizzie. Doodle and color your way through into a dream where a stunning whimsical world surrounds you.(Buy)

The book contains bold, vivid, outstanding images of stylish imagines from the 1950s vogue. You will find your favorite brands, most wanted silhouettes and old fashioned styles that are to die for!(Buy)

10. Creative Coloring Inspirations: Art Activity Pages to Relax and Enjoy! by Valentina Harper
My inspiration to get out of bed every morning is the quote ‘Today is going to be awesome’ which is stated on the front cover of the book. Just like that the book is full of creativity and inspirations that won’t only de-stress and relax you but enlighten and elevate your mood and energy levels. This one has been the last on my list but definitely is not the least!(Buy)
