I began to look for modern designs to color and found that there is quite a selection out there. Fellow blogger Jenn Ski offers three books in her Etsy store: Mid-Century Modern Patterns, Mid-Century Modern Mania, and Mid-Century Modern Animals. I have a couple of Jenn's prints on my walls, so naturally I had to order one of her coloring books.
On Amazon, I found Martini Madness: Mid-Century Modern Adult Coloring Book by Lynnda Rakos, Visual Poetry: Modern and Funky Patterns by Nona Meyers, Coloring Zen for the Stressed Out Modernist by Jennifer Zimmerman, the Alexander Girard Coloring Book, and several modern art and tattoo design books. That was just a casual search. Apparently, there are enough books out there to keep us modernists busy for months.
If you haven't already tried adult coloring books, you should. They're incredibly relaxing...and just as much fun as the coloring books of your childhood. Only cooler.
As an interesting aside, a few days before I received my first coloring book, I had found a set of Stabilo Pen 68 markers given to my parents over 30 years ago by their beloved exchange student when they visited him after he returned to Germany and took a tour of his family's factory. The pens had been packed away for decades but still worked as well as a new set. How's that for astounding product quality? I treated myself to a larger set, and now I can express myself in 50 colors.
