My monthly round up of the coloring books to be released that I am looking forward to
I had January off from creating the New Releases article but I’m back now with my first post on new coloring books to be released in February 2020.
This is not intended to be an exhaustive list of all coloring books being released. Bear in mind, that there are hundreds and hundreds of books being released every month. I cannot possibly keep up with all of them!
This list of new releases is only books that have taken my fancy, and that I think that you may like as well. Due to the high cost of postage for most readers, this list will usually not include International releases.
Many of these books I will be reviewing as part of my coloring book reviews.
Please also bear in mind that different countries often have different publication dates. Something may be released in the US earlier than in the UK or vice versa.
If you know of a new release that you think I may be interested in, leave a comment in the area below
let’s go …
Worlds Within Worlds: Colour New Realm
Kerby Rosanes’ latest coloring book has been released in the UK and Australia and will be released in the US shortly.
Kerby gave the coloring world the “morphia” series of coloring books and related products. This series of books introduced us to his doodle and realistic style that morphs into one. Worlds Within Worlds continues his extremely detailed style sans doodles. It feels like a maturation of Kerby’s distinctive artistic style. The publisher promises “Enchanting realms and entire universes are transported to strange and wonderful new habitats and a hidden magic key ‘unlocks’ the next world.” You will find “Viking ships set sail through the eyes of a skull, an open book has a steampunk city rising from its pages and a giant tortoise carries a haunted house on its shell” among other things.

Please note that there may be changes between the coloring books, depending on the edition, as different publishers are being used for each country.
Creative Haven: Best-Dressed Pets Coloring Book
Creative Haven publishers work with some amazing artists including one of my favorites, Marjorie Sarnat. Marjorie has created numerous coloring books featuring fairies, mermaids and animals among other things. Her pet-themed coloring books are some of my favorite coloring books. This coloring book was released in the US last month and is now being released in the UK.
There are 31 illustrations to color in this coloring book. Like all Creative Haven coloring books, there are two colored inspirational images, single-page illustrations, light to medium quality paper and perforated pages. The publisher’s blurb promises ” The well-dressed dogs and cats occasionally accompanied by a pot-bellied pig, duckling, bunny, or pony are depicted in themed outfits ranging from pajamas and beachwear to casual clothes for shopping and gardening to formal wedding attire.”
