Rolling and Decorating
Hails us this
And what better way to enjoy Easter this year than an adult coloring book filled with holiday designs.
Since this blog was for a long time dedicated to well, Life, Literature, and Lewd Comments it seems somehow appropriate that the latest release from J and I Publishing is a bibliophiles color book. With a multitude of reading nooks and books to color, this book brings pleasure to the life of any avid reader.
So take the time to check out this new release and broaden your horizons.
Step into a comfortable reading nook and pick up a book to relax with. In this color book you will find books, reading nooks and shelves filled to the brim for you to color and make your own. Take some time away from your everyday stress and bring these books to life. There are multiple styles of images included in this book ranging from easier to more complex designs, so colorists of all ages can find something to enjoy.
So what do we think about when we think of Easter, religious connotations aside?
I guess the big one is the chocolate eggs that have been out on display in stores since the day after Christmas. How could we have missed them? They come in all manner of shapes, sizes and flavours. They fill entire aisles and carry a price tag, at least the brand name ones do, that would necessitate the taking out of a significant loan. In fact, I am pretty sure that I have even seen stands set up with all the requisite application forms next to the eggs at some stores. Come on! These are chocolate eggs, and I am pretty sure they were not designed by Faberge himself. Neither, I think, were these little guys.
Anyway, moving on from my minor rant there, what else do we think of? I guess the standards are bunnies, chicks and general cute, furry, cuddly stuff. There are decorated eggs, the poor man’s version of the Faberge egg, one supposes, and baskets. Baskets of decorated eggs.
What else is there? I would value your thoughts on this. Please let me know in the comments about what images Easter conjures up for you.
Easter always evokes images of Spring, of new birth and renewal. A time of hope for the future.
Well I hope that you will forgive me for the following, extremely shameless, unabashed and even brazen, plug for an Easter coloring book.
What could be more relaxing this Easter than coloring those iconic images of Easter?
Coloring is not just for kids. It has been proven to be an excellent way for adults to destress, create mindfulness and slow down from daily life, all while enjoying an activity that you can truly make your own. Every effort has been made to ensure that this is an enjoyable way to spend your time, but paper quality is something we don’t have control over with this method of publishing, so please use the included sheet of paper behind your artwork to ensure that your chosen pens or markers do not bleed through to the next page. All pages are single sided to allow for framing and to help protect the next artwork.
There is no right or wrong way to color in the images in this book, and you are free to choose the tools you wish to work with. Markers, paint, colored pencils, pens – the choices are unlimited.
Sit back and unwind and let your stress melt away while you spread color across the pages. Relax and enjoy book seventeen, ‘Easter’ of this calming series.
PS: Assuming that you have made it this far, I really should have put this first, but then it wouldn’t have been a postscript then, would it. I digress! So if you are reading this then why not hop on over to the J and I Publishing blog where you can find information on releases of all of our books. I know. I know. You just want to get on over there to read about the adventures of our C.P.O, Chief Pig Officer, Sir Bacon. Whatever your reason, we would love to see you there.
A few words from the venerable C.P.O of J and I Publishing about his recent travels.
Those of you who keep up with J and I Publishing know that we have a very talented C.P.O. (Chief Pig Officer) named Bacon. He has been a good friend for a long time and we trust him with the big decisions for our publishing company.
If you keep up with this blog, you will notice that coming soon will be the life story of this fine swine, on a separate page entitled “The Big Life of a Small Pig,” written by the pig himself.
Until then, Bacon and I decided we would keep you updated on what he has been up to in the mean time. So this is his first hog post…er…blog post. Bacon and us at J and I went on a recent research mission for my WIP (Work including Piggy) to seek out some landscapes to draw. So here are some “pigtures” from Bacon’s personal collection…
