Welcome to dickblick
Our lives become busier with each passing day, and as technology escalates, so does our access to work, obligations, and stress. Constant stimulation and expectation have left us burnt out and distanced from the present moment. "Now" has become something that happens online, not in the space and time that we physically occupy.
Color Me Calm is a guided coloring book designed for harried adults. Art therapist Lacy Mucklow and artist Angela Porter offer up 100 coloring templates all designed to help you get coloring and get relaxed.
Organized into seven therapeutically-themed chapters including Mandalas, Water Scenes, Wooded Scenes, Geometric Patterns, Flora & Fauna, Natural Patterns, and Spirituality, the book examines the benefits of putting pencil to paper and offers adults an opportunity to channel their anxiety into satisfying, creative accomplishment.
Part of the best-selling Color Me series, Color Me Calm is the perfect way to step back from the chaos of everyday life, color, and feel relaxed!
Authors — Lacy Mucklow and Angela Porter.
Flexibound. 208 pages. 8½" × 9½" (22 cm × 24 cm).

Not as Many Pictures to Color as I Expected
By Dabbling Artist

Comments about Color Me Calm:
This is a soft-covered coloring book with very stiff covers. The pages are not made to be torn out. Despite the photos shown on the website... there is only one image for every two pages (so... fewer images to color, but less need to worry about bleed-through if you use markers.) There are 6 sections: Mandalas, Water Scenes, Wooded Scenes, Geometric Patterns, Flora & Fauna, & Natural Patterns. Each roughly 32 page section includes 4 pages of description or pre-colored pictures, and one blank page at the end (so, in the mandala section, there are actually only 14 pictures to be colored.)
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Love the pictures

Love the pictures. Very relaxing after a long day.
Beautiful pictures to color... did find two designs that she has showcased in color to not be in the book, other than that it's a great book.
Hours of coloring fun
from Dayton, OH
I really like this adult coloring book as it has a variety of images. This variety gives me some simple and easy to finish more quickly and others that are more complex and take me several sessions to complete.I've only used colored pencils on it so can't say how other mediums would work, but the paper is fairly thick.
Great coloring book

After trying several different books I've found this one to be the best! Smooth coloring, cool designs and interesting info regarding calming effect.
Better than expected

Bought this for my daughter and we were very surprised at the quality and thickness of this book. Very impressed and happy with the purchase.
Color Me Calm
I find this coloring book exactly as the title implies. Every time I color a bit in it I begin to relax. The designs have just the right level of detail, enough to keep your interest, but not so much as to be intimidating. My Color Me Calm is my go-to relaxation tool. I bought this copy as a gift for a friend and it arrived very promptly.
Pretty pages. Bought to have on hand as an extra gift.
