Adult Coloring Books become a “thing” in the US late 2015 and there are loads of Coloring Books for Adults that are going to be released very soon for the first time in the United States. If you want one, you had better pre-order on Amazon right now. I will do my best to keep this updated but even if they are available, these are the top most requested books.

Johanna Basford’s Newest Book Ivy & the Inky Butterfly
From coloring book Queen Johanna Basford, a lavishly illustrated fable about a girl named Ivy who stumbles upon a secret door leading to the magical world of Enchantia. Ivy embarks on a quest through its many realms in pursuit of her inky butterfly, meeting whimsical characters and discovering many wondrous things along the way. A charming story that interacts playfully with beautiful, colourable artwork in Johanna’s signature style, Ivy and the Inky Butterfly is a one-of-a-kind adventure for readers of all ages to customise, color, and cherish. This book is quite different from Ms. Basford’s usual size in that it’s more of a story book size versus the large square format we are used to and of course her story is illustrated throughout. The book will have more pages than her other’s as well, around 145 at last count. Johanna has picked a crisp ivory paper that accentuates and compliments your chosen colour palette. The smooth, untextured pages allows for beautiful blending or gradient techniques with coloured pencils, or are perfect for pens, allowing the nib to glide evenly over the surface without feathering.
After an extended time where Millie wasn’t creating new books, her newest creation is now available for pre-order due to launch on September 5, 2017
This book will contain Millie Marotta’s signature style of detailed illustration that can be colored in an intricate way or the easy way depending on your own personal coloring style. I always opt for the easy way. This bird-centric coloring book will include beautiful hummingbirds, Major Mitchell’s cockatoos, lyrebirds, cardinals, marvelous spatuletails, pygmy owls, and laughing kookaburras.
In this unique coloring book, sixty-three of Thomas Kinkade’s Disney Dreams images are presented in color across from the black line art of the same image to be colored. Enter the world of the painter of light yourself, as you create your own renditions of these classic Disney character paintings, including Alice in Wonderland, Beauty and the Beast, Cinderella, The Lion King, Snow White, and, of course, Mickey and Minnie. Release Date of September 17, 2017.
