The Wynwood Coloring Book Is a Success

wynwood-coloring-bookBack in April, we discussed The Wynwood Coloring Book created by novelist and illustrator Diego Orlandini. The book captures many of the Wynwood’s area’s most memorable murals created by 45 local and international artists among 64 pages that adults can color however they see fit. Since its debut, the book has proved to be a sizable hit, with more than 350 pre-orders.

The Wynwood Coloring Book is intentionally designed to be a more relaxing experience than the frequently seen adult coloring books that feature elaborate patterns and small details which according to Orlandini are “complicated and never-ending in repetition.” Adults will instead find smaller versions of the murals in the 8-by-8-inch adult coloring book.

Adult coloring books continue to gain in popularity as a way to reduce stress and anxiety. Right here in South Florida, popular bookstore Books & Books held an Adult Coloring Book Happy Hour where attendees could color while sipping on cool beverages like beer. There are plans to hold similar events during the summer.

The Wynwood Coloring Book costs $29.95 and can be purchased online at www.WynwoodColoringBook.com. It is also available at all four Books & Books locations in South Florida as well as Art Gallery Wyn 317 and the Wynwood Walls gift shop.
