Have you been bitten by the adult coloring bug? When I first saw a friend of mine with an easel dedicated to coloring books set up in her apartment, I was surprised (I'm the crafty type, but she's not so much -- she started coloring for relaxation). Shortly after this I began noticing coloring books everywhere.
In fact, according to Nielsen Bookscan, about 12 million adult coloring books were sold in 2015, as opposed to a mere 1 million in 2014. Those are some pretty impressive numbers, right? This is all somewhat nostalgic for me, as when I was a kid in the 70's, my Mom would take me to the University of Washington bookstore and they had a whole section with really complicated "adult" coloring type books that I used to love looking at. I guess they were a bit of a thing then, too. Lots of complicated geometric's and stained glass type designs. All of this started me thinking about possibilities -- like maybe my husband and I should design a book of our own. I mean, why not?
We started brainstorming about what we like and what wasn't out there -- and viola! Our coloring book for grown-ups -- Succulent Serenity -- was born.
