Staying Within the Lines: Colouring for Grown Ups

Colouring books used to all fall firmly within the purview of children. Not any more. Adult colouring books now top the bestseller lists. Colour pencils are in short supply. And the puzzling issue is why adults engage in activities that are modeled after things we used to do in kindergarten. Umapagan Ampikaipakan delves deep into the recent explosion of adult colouring books. He speaks to psychologists, creators, and colourers in an attempt at working out why this phenomenon has taken root and just what it means as a form of creative expression.
