The top-selling colouring books in the UK & Ireland vary quite a bit from the most popular books in the US this year. I thought that might be interesting for everyone to see.

The top-selling colouring book in the UK is my favorite for beginners as well.
The 2nd & 3rd slot go to two Disney Books, I wonder if people from the UK visit Disney in Paris as much as people in the US do?

This is one of my personal favorites, I adore all the Good Wives & Warriors coloring books so much that I did an entire page devoted to them. The size, the paper and the unbelievably imaginative illustrations.

Here’s another how-to-color book with step by step guides to making your adult coloring pages POP.
Practical step-by-step drawing techniques for rendering a variety of surfaces & textures. This makes the 3rd technique book in the top 10.
Johanna’s book was also one of the top books in the US. I’m having a lot of fun in that book although I’m still not anywhere close to the magicalness of our Queen of Coloring.
