Do you remember any of your colouring books as a kid? I have vague memories of a Cabbage Patch Dolls colouring book (man, they were such a big deal back then!), but to be honest I don’t really remember doing much colouring. I knew to get lots of colouring books when I had my own kids though! Both my girls, Kay in particular, can spend large chunks of the day colouring, and that’s what I call a win for everyone!
But since they insist on involving me in everything they do, I often get roped into colouring with them. They must know something I don’t, because when I sit at their teeny little table with a marker and a colouring book, that’s when I realize just how relaxing it is to colour. In the midst of the everyday stress and chaos that is the life of every parent, when I colour I can relax, exhale, and just let things go for a few minutes.
I’m not the only one who feels that way! Adults are rediscovering what kids have known all along: colouring is a relaxing and deeply satisfying activity for all ages! Vintage Pen Press makes beautiful colouring books for adults looking to carve out a few minutes of relaxation in their busy day. No cartoon characters or vegetable-themed dolls here! With vintage themes like the 70s and cigar labels, these are clearly made for grown-ups.
Each 8.5″x11″ page is printed on one side only so you don’t have to worry about colours bleeding through or having to pick which side you want to display. The matte paper feels just a little bit thicker than printer paper, and holds colour well. There’s also a dedicated colour test page in the back so you can see how your pencil, crayon, or marker will look before you start colouring.
Vintage Pen Press has two colouring books out now and more in the works. These would make beautiful and thoughtful presents for someone this holiday. Hubby and I do Christmas stockings for each other, and I know I’d love to find one of these in mine!
“Based on gorgeous lithographs of cigar box labels from years gone by, this adult coloring book invites you to create your own world of living color while de-stressing from all the cares of life. Each of the 40 stunning labels are pre-1920 with elegant designs that wrap you in the nostalgia of an age when life was simpler and people knew how to enjoy the moment.”
