Keep Calm & Colour On With These Adult Colouring Books

You could go try a workout or a dance routine to get rid of all the stress and negativity that’s been getting stored in your body – it works darn well. But there are days when you just don’t have the energy for any kind of physical activity and for those days, pick yourself an adult colouring book. For real. Sit indoors, get your colours out and get artsy amidst the social distancing and Covid-19 lockdown. 

If the idea of that sounds good to you but the thought of looking out for a good first colouring book stresses you out, fret not.

Secret Garden: An Inky Treasure Hunt & Coloring Book

The OG adult colouring book that started the trend, this colouring book has gorgeous patterns that aren't repetitive at all; a new page holds something different for everyone. And not something that comes to mind at first but the colouring book has really high quality paper that really sweetens up the entire experience.

Price: INR 556 

Secret Japan Postcards

This one’s pretty cool—it’s a book containing 20 detachable postcards. So once you’re done filling the pages with Japanese elements, you can tear it off and send it to your loved one (with a note, of course).

Price: INR 336

Mindfulness Moments

Mindful Moments is an exquisite little book with the most gorgeous illustrations for you to fill in with colour pencils and sketch pens. That’s not all though—the book is sprinkled with simple but great advice; on a page with houses on a street, you’ll find words like "Leave earlier to allow time for exploring" and on a page with snowflakes, it shows you steps to create your own with paper!

The Mindfulness Colouring Book

This colouring book by illustrator Emma Farrarons has 112 pages filled with soothing patterns of ocean waves, butterflies, tea cups, cats, leaves, fishes, and other objects. This is a pocket sized book and is just the right balance between intricate and too simple.

Price: INR 428

50 Shades of Bullsh*t: Dark Edition: Swear Word Coloring Book

If laughter is the quickest way for you to de-stress, this adult colouring book is perfect for you. You won't be able to hold that giggle in as you're colouring intricately written swear words. Just keep out of reach from any kids in your house!

Price: INR 294

The Jaya Colouring Book

We're no strangers to Devdutt Pattanaik's retelling of Mahabharata and we spent a fair amount of time admiring the illustrations so this colouring book is an epic adventure (get it?) we can't wait to embark on. And once you're done with the Mahabharata colouring book, there's also The Sita Colouring Book based on Ramayana you can get your hands on.

Price: INR 220
