Adult coloring book offers therapy with beauty of Hawaii


The adult coloring book trend that exploded last year shows no sign of slowing down. And while there is no shortage of books full of New Agey celestial designs and repetitive floral motifs, now there is an entry that reflects our tropical island home.

“Coloring Hawai‘i” (Mutual Publishing, $14.95), illustrated by Honolulu artist Kelly Monis, is 56 pages filled with kaleidoscopic images of jellyfish, honu, protea and ginger. Filling in each bit of white in a pattern of intertwined native birds and flowers or in an underwater scene of swirling eels will surely calm the nerves of those overwhelmed by the season’s demands.

The 10-by-10-inch book of 48 intricate drawings may even satisfy a few gift needs. Check
