Coloring Books – New Releases – June 2020

My pick of the new coloring books releases for June 2020

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 that you may like as well. Due to the high cost of postage for most readers, this list will usually not include International releases.

Many of these books I will be reviewing as part of my coloring book reviews.

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

About the author


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.

  • Thank you Lea for this list. I’m sure getting the Tim Jeff’s book. I love what he does.
    And thank you for putting in books for watercoloring too 😀

      • Thanks Mary! I really appreciate you taking the time to share your experiences – especially with customer service. I’ve been keeping an eye out on ebay to see if anyone was selling a box so I could test them out. I’d really love to have the 500 set (especially the more you talk about them haha). I think though I’ll try and save to buy them all at once. The CAD and AUD are about the same and when I worked out the price it was about $50+ a month for me :(. It’s doable when I have a job …but not at the moment. Hopefully I’ll be able to get to test a small box soon! Something to look forward to and a lovely investment in my coloring collection x
