Coloring Book Day is celebrated on the 2nd of August every year. There is magic between the sheets of a coloring book, a type of magic that can take us away and walk us within a million worlds. Further, coloring books make designers of us all, whether we decide to be Rembrandt with his sensible colors and patterns or Picasso with his unique cubist designs and surreal colors. The day helps us to get back to the days of our youth and dive into the pages of the coloring book.

History of Coloring Book Day

The first coloring book was founded in the late 1800s by the McLoughlin Brothers when they first published ‘The Little Folks Painting Book.’ From that point forward, they proceeded to produce books of this sort right up until the 1920s, when they joined forces with the Milton Bradley Firm. Coloring Book Day promotes the recognition of this long history of coloring books and the joy they can produce for children and adults alike.

That’s right; adults can color as well! There are highly detailed books specially created to be used by adults. No, these books aren’t pornographic in nature (Not all of them), but they are intricate and beautiful, and that’s before you start applying color to this page. Coloring books have been used for everything from educational purposes, to aiding in therapy and health. There are even unique coloring books aimed to help a child with what is going to happen during surgery; a limited understanding can assuage a significant amount of fear.
