Credited with helping jump-start this whole colouring book trend, Backbeat has a huge selection of them for you to choose from! Our customers are always excited to see what we have in store. Are you looking to unwind and relax? Beautify intricate patterns? Play drunken party games involving markers? Find the gift-of-the-moment for a friend? There are so many different types of colouring books to choose from – and we’ve got more arriving all the time. See below for just some of what we have in stock:
Not sure where to start? I always recommend these beautiful books by Johanna Basford. Her illustrations are breathtaking and inspiring. Secret Garden was her first book, then she came out with Enchanted Forest. Lost Ocean was just released on Tuesday – just in time to cozy up with as the weather turns colder. Already a fan or want to see Johanna’s process? You might enjoy this video:
Another line that has beautiful modern designs is Just Add Color. Whether you want to free your mind and colour in patterns (Geometric Patterns, Folk Art, Mid-Centry Modern Patterns) or add character to animals or themed designs (Tattoos, Botanicals, Day of the Dead, Mid-Century Modern Animals), these books are a little less intricate and a great addition to your collection.
Let’s move now onto some more series. Have you heard of Mandalas? They are spiritual geometric figures that represent the universe. The Big Book of Mandalas Volumes I and II are great introductions if you’re looking for a calming colouring experience. Outside the Lines I & II are some best-sellers in the colouring book world, as are the Posh Coloring series: Japanese Designs, Vintage Designs and Pretty Designs. Vive le Color! produces smaller-format books, perfect for carrying with you, so you can colour anytime, anywhere. You can also easily tear out your completed designs and display them when you’re done.
And finally, what would a book and music shop be without music-themed books? Of course, we jumped on The Indie Rock Coloring Book the minute we saw it, and it’s been one of our best-sellers yet. You’ve also heard us rave in past posts about our rap, heavy metal and punk colouring and activity books. Looking for a gift for that trendy friend who’s the life of the party? They’ll definitely appreciate Coloring for Grown-Ups or Color Me Drunk.
We also have markers and coloured pencils (regular and metallic) in stock, as well as many more books for your artsy and colouring pleasure. Come on in and check them out in person – we’re sure you’ll find something you’ll like!
