Relax, Enjoy, & Color: The Creative Side of Food
Coloring books for adults are all the rage these days. They provide hours of entertainment, allow us to relax and explore our creative side. For all food lovers comes Edible Paradise: A Coloring Book of Seasonal Fruits and Vegetables by Jessie Kanelos Weiner. We’ve included an example from this beautiful, artfully illustrated coloring book following our cover theme of strawberries.
The book is an enchanting journey to discovering the seasonal delicacies found in forests, fi elds, gardens and urban farm stands. The user will get lost in the intricate and hypnotizing details of delectable images of strawberry patches, bouquets of fresh herbs, beehives and honeybees, fall harvest baskets and nuts rolling on the forest fl oor. Hopefully it inspires them to take out their gardening gloves to plant some radishes or to take a trip to the farmers market.
