What's New

Coloring Books – New Releases September 2022

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.

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 …

Little Secrets from my Fairy House Coloring Book

Little Secrets from my Fairy House Coloring Book Klara MarkovaWe’ve waited for over a year for Klara Markova’s next coloring book and it’s worth the wait.   Little Secrets from my Fairy House is inspired by Klara’s own new home (which sounds like a fairy wonderland!).    Inside you will find pictures  “inspired by my fairy house and garden.. from the pond that is nearby, I created a small sea in my imagination full of mermaids, sea horses, and little sea dragons..In the book you will find many elves and fairies, little dragons and little witches with cats- inside my kitchen cabinet which are making herbal perfumes, mandrake babies from my greenhouse, but also a weasel ( living under the roof of my garage ) who takes two little fairies to a picnic, and a mole who, when I put buzzing scarecrows in the ground, started playing the saxophone and definitely didn’t move away 🙂 and much, much more cuties.”

As usual, the cover is beautifully colored with gilding BUT this cover also has a nighttime version (it glows in the dark!) so you can see the fairies at play at night!      The pages are printed on cream 150 gsm paper, the same as all of Klara’s previous coloring books.  There are 112 pages including 4 double-page and 1 page with opening special Christmas “doors” which is similar to the format that Klara has used for all of her coloring books.

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.
