The Coloring Craze: Adult Coloring Books, 2015

Panzer jumped in the Panzermobile and headed out into the Catosphere today. Our big bad intrepid explorer kitty was intent on tracking down information on the newest writing trends.

Panzer has been hearing a lot about the adult coloring book market and wanted to know if the rumor was true. Searching around he ended up at the Publishers' Weekly site. It only took a little digging to find what he was looking for.

One paw print per page by us.
According to a post by Jim Milliot, it's true that adult coloring books have taken over the publishing market in 2015. Penguin, Laurence King, Indigo Books, and other publishing houses have all joined the craze. Authors/artists' books are selling in the hundreds of thousands of copies per coloring book. Some publishers are also joining in with stickers books and connect-the-dots books for adults.

Panzer says, "Ummm ... Coloring books I understand. I can make a really good paw print for Mom to color ... but ... stickers books and connect-the-dots books? It's turning into a real playground out there."

Note: This is a medium post, so a cup of tea and a muffin should do it for your reading today.
