Lately everyone has been colouring their world – quite literally. The hottest trend in books is adult colouring books. Now don’t be judgemental – colouring really isn’t just for kids. Give it a try. Colouring is soothing relaxing and makes you slow down and focus, after all you have to stay in the lines.
Though children’s colouring books tend to be simple and have big images of Dora, Ducks and all things Disney, adult books are filled with sophisticated, intricate illustrations that inspire creativity. Check out some of these great books from Indigo. Remember you’re never too old to get creative and colour!
Vogue Colours A to Z
In this first-ever colouring book from American Vogue, you are invited into a world of fashion fantasy.
Twenty-six archival magazine covers from 1912 to 1932, by ten celebrated illustrators living here and abroad, take you back to a more playful and whimsical moment of boas, bows, hats and headpieces, fans, pearls and gloves, and even exotic animals. Colouring book fans of all ages can try their hand at the Art Deco patterns and letters from A to Z and the lively drawings of women dressed for the task at hand, whether it is driving their own car, pruning morning glories in the garden, feeding a dragon, steering a gondola, sitting on a crescent moon, perched on a peacock or riding a zebra—side-saddle, of course. This is the Vogue woman as liberated, stylish, and always dressed for adventure.
At the back, don’t miss the twenty-six Vogue covers in their original colorus with lively captions as well as a stunning six-page gatefold of twenty-one glamorous dresses from 1912–1932 to colour, tear out, and display.
