It’s time once again for a round-up of the best coloring books for grown-ups. A new slew of the coolest and most unusual coloring books available on the market (some aren’t even out yet!). My Part I, Part II and Part III posts on cool and hip coloring books for adults have been a favorite of my readers and If It’s Hip, It’s Here was due to put out an updated and new version, so here it is.
This collection includes coloring books by such respected artists and writers as Matali Crasset, Charley Harper, Seymour Chwast, Robert Smigel and Ed Gorey, to name a few. Tattoos, Punk Rock, Heavy Metal, Cannabis and Fetish coloring books can also be found in this collection. Some of these are kinky, even crass, while others are truly artistic and in one case, Zen. Even Unicorns, Steampunk Devices, Desserts, Skateboarders and Gender Bender coloring books made this list.
Some are R-rated, others are G rated, but all of them are creative, imaginative and fun. Most of these have been published within the past two years or are about to be published, in which case they can be pre-ordered. In a few cases, some are older but were not on my first three posts about cool coloring books. These make great gifts, so stock up now for the holidays.
Unicorns Are Jerks: a coloring book exposing the cold, hard, sparkly truth by Theo Nicole Lorenz
Unicorns think they’re so great because they’re all mysterious and magical, but they can be real jerks sometimes. This coloring book features eighteen examples of unicorns texting in theaters, farting in elevators, eating your leftovers, and generally acting like jerks.

The Existential Coloring Book by Archie McPhee
This looks like a coloring book for kids, but it’s probably not a good idea to give it to one.

Features quotes from existential thinkers, mysterious pictures to color and mildly depressing activities. Comes Bagged.

The Wuggly Ump and Other Delights Coloring Book by Edward Gorey
The artist Edward Gorey (American, 1925 2000) created a diverse menagerie ranging from Menacing Monsters to Sleepy Cats. One of his creepiest Creatures was an Ump renowned for its Wuggliness. Mr. Gorey drew the Ump, from its ‘little wilful eyes’ to the tip of its snakey tail, and he wrote down its scarey story. The whole thing is here for you to color, along with some other pictures of Cats, a Lion, several Little Girls, and two Ladies in Very Big Hats. You will find twenty-two of Gorey’s pictures in this coloring book. They are shown as small pictures on the inside front and back covers. Sometimes Gorey used color, but quite often he simply drew with black ink. Still, he’d have been curious to see what colors you might add to his drawings.

Kama Sutra Sexual Positions: Adult Coloring Book by Speedy Publishing LLC
An ancient Hindu text, the Kama Sutra dates back to between 400 BC to 200 AD, and is regarded by many as an authoritative encyclopedia of human sexual behavior, and in specific, a canonical inventory of descriptively named positions and accompanying steps for sexual intercourse and other methods of sensual pleasures for the benefit of both partners. An accompanying adult coloring book to the Kama Sutra might be a valuable study aid, a sort of lab manual if you will, by which sexual inhibitions and or anxieties of one or either partner are lessened by expressive drawing and playfulness.
