What's New

Coloring Book New Releases – October 2023

This is not intended to be an exhaustive list of all coloring books being released. Bear in mind, that there are hundreds and hundreds of books being released every month. I cannot possibly keep up with all of them!

This list of new releases is only books that have taken my fancy, and that I think you may like as well. Due to the high cost of postage for most readers, this list will usually not include International releases.

Please also bear in mind that different countries often have different publication dates. Something may be released in the US earlier than in the UK or vice versa.

If you know of a new release that you think I may be interested in, leave a comment in the area below

There are a lot of books that are available for pre-order that I will include here as well

let’s go …

Creature Corners: A Book to Trace and Color

This book is a little different.  First, the colorist needs to trace the line art in the book and experiment with different pen types and weights while doing so.  Once finished, they have a book they can color in.     I haven’t seen the book (or a look inside) but it may be that tracing is not necessary at all and that you can color with a more painterly look with barely there lines.     I would be interested in having a look if you buy this book so please tag me on Instagram so I can have a sticky beak!

Inside you will find “creature-run shops, like the goat postal service, cat cafe, or polar bear sushi stand”

About the author

coloringqueen

I'm Lea and I love everything to do with coloring! If it is a coloring book, a poster or even a bookmark that you can color in, I'm all over it. Of course, a girl has to have some pencils, markers, gelly rolls, pastels and what not to make those pictures pretty and I love those as well.

Whilst my coloring style lacks skill, I am enthusiastic and focused on enjoying the moment and having fun.
