This is strong 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 comments area below
Let’s go …..
Ivy & The Inky Butterfly
This book is sure to be on a lot of wish lists and Christmas lists this year. Johanna Basford is stepping out from her well known and successful coloring book format with this book. Ivy combines beautiful illustrations to color complete with a magical tale that was crafted by the Queen of Coloring herself. In this book, we also see a more playful and whimsical side to Johanna’s elegant inking. It is sure to be a colorist favorite and a keepsake book.
