Splendid Cities

 

Splendid Cities: Color Your Way to Calm Book

 

This square-shaped book by Splendid Cities has a huge range of double spread images to spend your hours on while on your long haul flight (or while you plan your next vacation). The intricate designs are beautifully created. 

However, users do have a couple of complaints with this relieving stress coloring book for adults, one being that the paper isn’t thick and that markers bleed. Another is that the pictures are printed back to back and that the images run right into the spine in the middle, so it does make it difficult to color for a perfect finish.

National Parks

 

National Parks Coloring Book 

 

If you’re a nature lover, who like nothing more than to surround yourself with the idyllic landscapes of the National Parks coloring book, then this could be the inspired “trip” for you. It’s filled with line drawings that depict scenes from the national parks, along with illustrations of native plant and animal life. It also includes information about each park, so you can learn as you color.

It is available in either paperback, or spiral-bound, however, some reviewers have again commented that the images are printed on back-to-back pages, so it is difficult to color on both sides without spoiling the picture.

Grayscale

 

Grayscale Coloring Book

 

This series of adult coloringbooks by Grayscale are larger in size than some of the others we have mentioned, but are great for the level of detail and intricacy of the designs. They are not the usual, “color-between-the-lines” style of art coloring book for adults but instead show the scenes in a grayscale effect, allowing you to color or paint over in your own way. 

Possibly for the more advanced artist, rather than an amusing time killer for a long haul flight, but they can take you to a range of destinations, including Paris, Amsterdam, Copenhagen, London, and Venice

 

We’re sharing examples of what to pack for Europe during various times of the year!

Where Can I Buy Adult Coloring Books?

 

Amazon adult coloring books are there by the hundreds. Some are travel themed, like the ones we have included, but you can also find stress relief coloring books for adults with detailed mandala patterns, or adult color books based on your favorite hobby or animal.

 

 

What Goes In Your Travel Coloring Kit?

 

Most people like to use either markers or pencil crayons for their art. Some people have commented that gel pens are great to use for detailed, intricate designs as they have a fine nib that allows you to color without going over the lines. 

Don’t forget a sharpener if you use pencils though!
