10 Useful and Cool Colouring Books for Adults

Colouring is very popular in our house. Not only do my children love to colour, but I actually find it quite therapeutic. As well as being a fun way to pass the time, I also think colouring – and experimenting with colour – can be a great way to stimulate and inspire.

There are obviously heaps and heaps of colouring books out there for kids, but you might not realise that there are lots of colouring books available for adults looking to add a bit of colour to their lives. I’ve rounded up ten of the best currently available online; I’ll leave the choice of pen, pencil or crayon to you…

1. The Sneaker Colouring Book

2. The Indie Rock Coloring Book

3. Gangsta Rap Coloring Book

4. DA Coloring Book, Volume 1

5. Salvador Dali Colouring Book

6. Coloring Book: Andy Warhol

7. Coloring Book: Gustav Klimt

8. Street Art Colouring Book

9. Devil Babe’s Big Book of Fun

10. Coloring Book for Critical Thinking


There is obviously some discrepancy here between the English spelling, “colour”, and the American spelling, “color”. If you want to know the history behind this, you can read more here. But both spellings obviously have the same meaning, and whatever side of the pond you’re on, if you’re looking for a relaxing way to pass the time, or even looking for new ways to find creative inspiration, you could do worse than to pick up a colouring book and let those colours flow!
