No. Wait. That conveys something entirely different. You may have heard something about the current craze for coloring books designed to appeal to grown-ups.
For example this article right here in About Health (which is a very informative online newsletter, by the way) or this article in flavorwire or mental floss or here or any number of places.
Coloring book are not just a way to recapture your childhood bliss--though there's nothing wrong with that!--there's plenty of evidence to suggest coloring helps reduce stress and boosts creativity and imagination. It's like knitting for those of us who can't be trusted with sharp instruments.
Today's advent calendar is a page from LOVE IS A MANY-COLORED THING, which is the coloring book created by myself and the wonderfully talented Johanna Ollila. The book contains 25 original pieces of Johanna's wonderful drawing accompanied by appropriate excerpts from the referenced works. You can purchase it here or here.
We're going to make this page a free download here--and eventually we might even hold some kind of coloring page gallery or contest. (Although I guess a contest would sort of defeat the relaxation element of the whole project!) Anyway, get out your colored pencils and take the page for a spin!
