One of our biggest sellers over the holidays was Johanna Basford's adult coloring books. They're also the reason we can't keep colored pencils in stock!
When coloring, we may not be "creating" anything like when we're painting, knitting, writing, or drawing, but the activity is just so soothing for the soul. Clearly we're not the only ones who have jumped on this meditative bandwagon. After the release of Johanna Basford's Lost Ocean coloring book, we had multiple requests come in for her new book. There were, and still are, plenty of people looking for the mystical mermaids and swaying jellyfish to color.
The best part is you don't have to be artsy to enjoy this new trend of adult coloring books. You just need some patience, a quiet space, a book, and some colored pencils.
