Brain Bend: Extreme Architecture Mazes to Decode and Color by Mister Mourao
Rockport Publishers | USD: $15.99

Brain Bend is a unique book featuring 25 wild, vibrant, architecturally themed mazes, along with black-and-white versions of the same artwork for coloring in. The stunning, mind-bending designs, range in style from joyfully freeform to impressively structured, offer a stimulating visual challenge to maze and coloring enthusiasts. It also includes maze solutions at the back of the book. And the perforated pages make it easy to remove the designs, and high-quality, heavy, uncoated paper make them a pleasure to solve and color.

This is such a brilliant book which combines the fun of coloring and maze solving! I have never seen anything like it before. Visually compelling and challenging, each maze features various architectural shapes and structures drawn in 3D. The author provides three versions for each maze: fully colored, partially colored, and black-and-white. The fully colored versions are provided by the author as inspiration for coloring the templates; the partially colored version makes it easier to solve the maze; and the black-and-white version opens up all possibilities for creativity. The book also includes two fold-out pages with mega mazes. Offering hours of creative and entertaining activities, Brain Bend is an excellent book for both children and grown-ups to relax and stretch their minds.

Draw, Color, and Sticker Creative Lettering Sketchbook: An Imaginative Illustration Journal by Marissa Giambrone
Quarry Books | USD: $19.99

Draw, Color, and Sticker Creative Lettering offers page after page of beautiful inspiration designed to get you drawing letters! Stickers and partially illustrated pages provide a rich canvas to encourage you to practice drawing with a multitude of elements and across multiple themes. Black and white drawings with touches of color will get you started, and invites further experimentation. The uncoated paper stock is perfect for drawing, painting, and coloring with any variety of materials. The included stickers are printed on soft uncoated paper so they can take color or additional drawing on top!

Any book with stickers is a sure win with the kiddos and this book is no exception. It contains 500 stickers that are either colored or waiting to be colored by the creative minds and hands. This book has convinced me that letters are not just for words and that they can turn into stunning artwork through changes in style and color. It's amazing to discover in this book so many different forms letters can take: illuminated, shadow, woodland, inside out, creature, floral, just to name a few. I love how the book provides step-by-step exercises to help beginners master the art of creative lettering, which can be used to add a unique touch to banners, signs, greeting cards, and handwritten letters. Besides easy to follow tutorials, the book also provides helpful prompts and ample space for your own creation. Feel free to enhance it with the stickers and fun quotes included in the back of the book!
