What if you spent every day looking for One Beautiful Thing?

Color(ing) Theory:


According to science, coloring books are a great way to de-stress. While some of my readers may differ from me (and each other) on the subjects of politics and religion and art, I think we can all agree that less stress = good. So today, I’m taking a look at the best coloring books I could find on Etsy.

And if coloring flowers and birds and mandalas isn’t going to do it for you, there are a few more adult-themed coloring books below as well.

By the way, I’m always delighted with reader suggestions, so if I’m leaving off a coloring book you love, please post it in the comments for us all to enjoy.

Happy coloring!

  2. What a great selection. As a fan of Jaws and sharks, I’m especially drawn to that one. As you know, art is what I do to decompress and feel more “me” so I totally understand the lure of adult colouring books. I’m not a fan of colouring in myself, but I get the appeal and certainly endorse the stress busting qualities of doing anything creative whether it’s art or music or cooking.

  3. Some of these are fantastic! My sister gave me an adult coloring book for Christmas last year. My boyfriend looked hopefully puzzled until I explained that it wasn’t *that* kind of adult. It has nice flower pictures. ( :
