The adult coloring book trend has skyrocketed, and there are so many books to choose from! Mandalas, nature, and geometric designs fill the pages of so many. Maybe you've colored dozens of mandalas, or maybe you're looking for your first adult coloring book. No matter where you are in your coloring journey, the Jim Shore Angel Coloring Book is a beautiful collection to get your hands (and your colored pencils) on! Complete with over 50 folk art angel designs and wonderful 3D elements, this adult coloring book is overflowing with inspiration.

The brainchild of Jim Shore and his wife Jan, this adult coloring book focuses on one of the most popular motifs found in Shore's artwork: angels! In his note prefacing the coloring book, he states, "No matter what else I have going on, whether I have five projects in the hopper or 20, I'm always working on an angel." He describes how angels inspire him and how they really have become a staple in his artwork.

If you love a folk art style, Shore's angels feature traditional details, creating a happy marriage of the celestial and traditional, the otherworldly and the earthly. I love these contrasts so much, and the effects are so lovely! Each angel features gorgeous motifs across a variety of subjects. Many include natural designs like flowers and vines strewn throughout. You will find angels with woodland creatures and angels in beautiful seasonal landscapes. A few angels are depicted with peaceful nativity scenes. Some point to specific holidays like Christmas, Thanksgiving, and Easter. An angel drawn with a lion and a lamb is a favorite of Shore's.

3D elements at the back of the coloring book allow you do add embellishment for a beautiful effect. Simply color the 3D element and use foam squares or another dimensional adhesive on the original coloring page to help the design really pop. This unique feature of the coloring book really does allow for an expansive coloring experience!

Celebrate a traditional folk art style by coloring angels from the Jim Shore Angel Coloring Book. A beautiful way to celebrate a variety of occasions, coloring this artwork will be a peaceful activity. Be inspired by the angels and relaxed by the act of coloring. This lovely adult coloring book belongs in every folk art-loving household.
