What's New

Coloring Books New Releases – June 2024

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 …

It’s back …..

The Book of Wildergorn

For fans of this large A3-sized book you will be pleased to know it is now back in stock.  This monster book is a luxurious coloring book featuring a silver metal binding (allowing the book to fold back) a red saying bookmark and hardback “sturdy gloss laminated covers”.   The book contains illustrations from “artist and explorer Jamie Courtier, during his expeditions to Wildergorn”.   These are highly detailed and intricate pieces of art that are just stunning in black and white and even better when colored.

The book is printed on double-sided paper.  Extensive testing was conducted to ensure that the 300 gsm uncoated card paper is “thick enough to prevent most types of ink penetrating the page”.  According to the book blurb markers, gel pens, brush pens, inks, watercolors and pencils can all be used.     A test page has also been included if you want to try your mediums before diving in.

Tales of Mischief Coloring Book

Jack Brutus Penny is a UK “nonsense writer and illustrator” living in Japan.    His work is highly detailed and interesting.   You can check it out at his shop here.   After creating books, playing cards, coasters, and even cuff links Jack is dipping his toes into the coloring book world.       He is creating a completely different style of coloring book that most colorists are familiar with.

His coloring book is called Tales of Mischief in Colour which will be a limited edition book.   This luxury hardcover book features a textured and foiled cover.   The line art in this 24-page coloring book is already colored and the book is presented in the traditional Japanese Orihon style.    This is an accordion-style book where it folds out.   I have coloring books that have pre-colored lines and I have accordion-style books but this is the first time I’ve seen both styles combined in one book.

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.
