I don’t know what’s going on, or what year it is anymore, but one of the newest trends in travel is-get this-coloring books. And I’m not talking for kids, either. My wife is into them, too. The most popular seems to be “Gulliver’s New Travels: Coloring in a New World” by acclaimed illustrator James Gulliver Hancock.
From Amazon: “Hancock has woven in his own personal experiences and travel stories among the incredible coloring scenes in this book. This modern take on the 18th-century Gulliver’s Travels plays with scale as in the land of Lilliput and the giants of Brobdingnag, while also referencing places from around our world, across many different landscapes, and even in future worlds and distant galaxies. The result is a coloring book that is playful, fanciful, and wonderful to behold. Hancock invites colorists to explore every facet of this book and make it their own with pens, pencils, paints, and more. Similar to taking a fantastic journey across new countries and cultures, Hancock encourages you to wander among the drawings, inviting you to discover details you might not have noticed at first, such as a diver swimming through flowers or a tiny climber scaling a cactus. From imaginary maps to giant birds, urban jungles to a flotilla of boats on the sea, it’s perfect for anyone with a passion for travel and color.”
Research shows that coloring can reduce stress levels so you might want to pick up this coloring book and some Prismacolor Premier Colored Pencils for your next flight.
