We've rounded up our favourite adult colouring books to help make Christmas less stressful - and to ease you through January.
The colouring phenomenon is showing no signs of slowing down - here's a reminder why.
- Immersing our brains in an engrossing activity that requires concentration (if you're keen to keep inside the lines) forces us to slow down and relax
- It's a great way to kickstart creativity but isn't as daunting as tackling a piece of artwork from scratch
- The process improves brain function, much like crosswords do
- Between Twitter, Insta, Facebook and a relentless 24-hour news cycle, our lives are increasingly dominated by digital impermanence - colouring gives a sense of accomplishment and results in a real thing of beauty
From Johanna Basford's mega-hit Enchanted Forest to Liberty's classic prints, these are the beautiful colouring books to gift or keep.
