It’s time to break out the crayons.
If you haven’t done that recently, you’re behind the times: One of the year’s fast-growing hobbies for adults is coloring.
And a venerable publishing house, Little, Brown, is releasing four coloring books for adults this year, all subtitled “Color Your Way to Calm.”
“Splendid Cities” and “Secret Paris” were published this summer, while “Secret Tokyo” and “Secret New York” are coming out in October.
Many busy people say they find the pastime a relaxing break from electronic screens.
John Jr. and Edmund McLoughlin, two brothers from New York, are credited with creating the first coloring books, the “Little Folks” series, in the 1880s. It helped that crayons started selling about that time, too. Did we mention that Sunday was National Coloring Book Day?
