The Lancashire Colouring Book: Past and Present The Lancashire Colouring Book: Past and Present

Colouring books have had somewhat of a reinvention over the past couple of years, as we have been fleeing to the shops to snap up ‘colouring books for grown-ups’. Fans of the craze have praised as them as the ultimate relaxation method, an alternative to meditation and research has even proven that they can benefit your mental health. The rise of colouring books seems to be part of a wider ‘digital detox’, offering an alternative way to switch off and absorb yourself in a creative task. The trend has also spread to the digital media world, as people have been uploading their coloured creations to platforms such as Instagram and Pinterest – with positive responses!

Lancashire seems to be getting in on this colouring craze, as a brand new colouring book has been released which features some of the county’s most recognisable landmarks. The Lancashire Colouring Book: Past and Present is the latest in a popular series of regional colouring books published by The History Press and will feature recognisable landmarks including Lancaster Castle and The Harris Museum and Art Gallery in Preston. The book will also include a range of picturesque vistas including scenes from around Blackpool, Lancaster, Burnley and Morecambe.

The book is aimed to appeal not only to tourists but also to locals as it will feature a range of picturesque locations, including rich countryside to sandy beaches to vibrant towns and cities.

The Lancashire Colouring Book: Past and Present is suitable for all ages and abilities and is the perfect gift for any history buff, lover of the county or simply someone who just needs a bit of down time.
