Colouring books for adults are a huge craze these days. Most of the colouring books I’ve tried have smaller intricate designs and patterns, but recently I tried out something different: Mills & Boon The Art of Romance colouring book. This book celebrates 100 years of the publisher’s most iconic covers and is really unique compared to a lot of the colouring books I’ve come across.


The pictures have larger blocks of space to colour, and are in a vintage style to match the designs of the books.

Next to each cover picture you also get information about this era


and there are examples to show you ways that you could colour and shade the pictures


as well as a collection of all of the original covers for reference. You could check and copy the colours from the original, or just pick your own like I did. There are 40 cover pictures included inside the book.


Because the pictures are not as detailed as some, and have larger spaces to colour, you can complete these pictures more quickly than some more intricate books. This makes it handy when you just want to take a short break to relax, colour and complete something more quickly, rather than having an hour or so to spend on the picture.

It’s interesting to see the different styles throughout the ages, and to see the fashions that appear in some of the older ones. Anyone who is interested in vintage things would enjoy this, or anyone who has been an avid reader of Mills & Boon romance books over the years.


This Art of Romance colouring book has been released earlier this month, and is available to buy from WH Smith.
