As adult colouring books continue to fill up wish lists, B.C. is finally represented.
The idea for a colouring book that included familiar landscapes came to Carrie Wong and Witek Radomski during a hike in the Kootenay mountains.

There are also a few from the artists’ internal landscapes, including magical forests, aliens and a black hole.

Guardian scribe Zoe Williams discovered that five of the top 10 selling books on Amazon were colouring books for adults, while in Brazil, adult colouring books occupied six of the top 10 slots on their non-fiction bestseller list.
The movement has finally come to Prince George.
