What’s the big deal?

The adult colouring book concept is being promoted with the notion that they’re good for you. Health-wise, they’re said to help relieve stress, being a cathartic and meditative task that enables the artist within to focus on the single, repetitive task of filling in the lines on the page. Whatever. We think they're just fun. So we’ve rounded up our favourite adult colouring books on the market for you to play with, and showed you where to buy them. Before you get started, here are some inspirational Pinterest pics to get you excited about colouring in. Not that you aren’t already, we suspect.

      Hi Linda,

      Thanks for your question.

      Most colouring books don’t come accompanied with pencil packs. The Dream Catcher series occasionally sells a combo pack for their books – you can find one for sale on eBay here or on Amazon here if you prefer.

      Booktopia is also about to release a Marabout series of colouring books that come with a set of pencils – you can browse the series here .

      I hope this has helped,

      Stephanie
