Adult Coloring Book Combined with Journaling Offers Multiple Forms of Relief in One Notebook

Over the past year, we've admired many coloring books for adults. Their relaxing qualities make them an ideal way to unwind from the stresses of daily life. The makers of the ColoringNotebook have taken this idea a step further by joining the joy of coloring with notebook paper. This dynamic combination pairs visual art and writing, allowing you to express yourself in multiple ways: by jotting down your thoughts and embellishing over 50 original illustrations. The intricate and charming drawings include a variety of subjects, featuring birds, flowers, geometric shapes, mandalas, and abstract patterns throughout the publication.

Each 176-page ColoringNotebook is individually crafted from beautiful materials. Japanese paper adorns the hardcover with rounded corners, and every book is hand sewn with its own bookmark. Inside, there are three types of paper available–blank, ruled, or dot grid–perfect for writing, drawing, or creating diagrams. Every sheet is archival quality and acid free, which allows you to use different types of media without degrading the paper.

ColoringNotebook is now available for pre-order and expected to ship in February 2016.
