Coloring Ain’t For Me:

A series for those who feel burned out at the end of the day’s end— for those who think of themselves as non-artistic—for those who would rather shop, travel, eat or dream than colour. The noncommittal, not-so-art-like quality of the series draws such people into their secret fantasy worlds. They can travel to places off the map, eat without giving a thought to that extra calorie, splurge and dream, only to know that they can never be wrong.

Pattern after pattern unravels the threads of imagination of the reluctant artists creating a piece of tangible reality.

  • Dream-o-Holic
  • Colouring, that the stargazers would not dream of, becomes the stuff of their dreams in the pages of this book of mindful colouring. Pattern after pattern unravels the threads of their imagination and leads them through the mazes of their mind. They dream as they colour and, in the process, colour their dreams.

    Detailed doodling pages are scattered throughout the book, making them a haven for daydreamers. A beautiful and inspiring book for dreamers, it leaves them mesmerised and relaxed.
