There’s no doubt that advanced colouring has been one of the most exciting trends to hit our bookshelves in recent years. Starting out as a niche hobby slowly trickling into the UK from France, it soon exploded into a phenomenon that had everyone from stressed out workers to artistic types sharpening up their colouring pencils and taking some quiet time to complete a page of their colouring books.
Praised for their apparent relaxing and therapeutic benefits, adult colouring books haven’t gone anywhere yet and illustrators continue to surprise and captivate us with their new designs. But with so many new and exciting books emerging, it can be easy to miss some along the way. We’ve rounded up some of the advanced colouring books that have stood out for us in recent months, covering everything from art therapy, to exotic landscapes, to Harry Potter, to cats and dogs. Take a look at our list below to discover the next colouring book you’ll be quietly scribbling away in.
