Art therapy and colouring are great ways to relax and discover a creative outlet. Adult colouring has been gaining popularity and now there’s a plethora of great books out there to colour to your heart’s content! Let’s take a look at some of the best colouring book picks for this summer.

Escape to Wonderland: A Colouring Book Adventure
This is an intricately designed, beautiful book with a hint of magic and fun to take you away from the world while you colour.
Sit the F*ck Down and Colour: Adult Swear Word Colouring Book for Stress Relief
This is one for those who can appreciate the childish nature of colouring in swear words and accompanying illustrations. There’s something cathartic about saying f*ck it, and now you can do just that while clutching your Crayola.
Millie Marotta’s Tropical Wonderland: A Colouring Book Adventure
Millie Marotta has designed gorgeous exotic plants and animals for this Tropical Wonderland, another beautiful and intricate choice to relax and inspire.
Swearing Cats Coloring Book
A Sweary Adult Coloring Book of 40 Rude, Funny Swearing Cat Designs with Zentangle and Mandala Style Patterns: Volume 2
A slight twist here to bring together two amazing things in life : cats and swearing. Can’t get much better than that. Let your seriousness be displaced while you have a go at this one!
This one does what it says on the tin. Gorgeously crafted mandalas for hours of relaxation, where you can create a colourful masterpiece on each page.
Cats : 70 Designs to Help You De-stress
What I also quite like about this one is that the sheets are detachable, so you can more easily stick up your works of art on display when you’re finished.
Enchanted Forest : An Inky Quest & Colouring Book
Take a trip to the Enchanted Forest, where you’ll find enigmatic outlines to complete and colour in a world of your own. There’s an added bonus with this one: hidden symbols that will reveal something special by ‘unlocking’ the castle door at the end of your journey.
Moomin Colouring Diary
This is super cute & I love it! This works as a weekly diary where you can keep track of events or journal your feelings as you colour, complete with Moomin words of wisdom and inspiration along the way.
