I like to take a look back and my sales figures at the end of the year to see what coloring books have been the best sellers. Now that the fad has subsided and only we diehard colorists are still true to our coloring addiction, the books are tending away from the mainstream artists.
Mandala’s, funny coloring books & Color by Number seem to be favorites in 2019, perhaps due to the way the world looks this year, we need a break from the negative happenings around us and escape into our colorful world. A few big names made the top 25 including Johanna Basford, Kerby Rosanes, Hanna Karlzon & Jane Monk.
