Do you Knit? Crochet? Do Crosswords or Sudoku? If so you understand the power of a relaxing, cerebral hobby. Many claim hobbies like these have serious health benefits. In the last year or so we’ve seen an increase in a similar hobby, one that I think I might actually be able to get into, the coloring books for grown-ups. A quick google search yielded hundreds if not thousands of results, most of which were not even rated R let alone more risqué. Most consist of patterns, animals, buildings and such, honestly it looks like a lot of fun.
Well Thunder Bay has taken it a step further by offering 3D coloring books!
“Thunder Bay Press expands its popular line of coloring books with a unique twist on the coloring book movement. Coloring book fans and fanatics can now enter a new dimension with 3D Coloring (Nature, Flowers, and Animals).

The 3D Coloring books are sized at 8.25” x 11.5” which as the press release states would be a great size to frame, if you can stay in the lines!
