Romantic fiction publisher Mills & Boon is to launch its first ever colouring book.
The Art of Romance is intended as a celebration of over 100 years of the publisher’s most iconic covers ranging from the austere war years, the birth of a royal baby, the swinging sixties and even the rise of the rom-com in the noughties.
The book features 47 illustrations for readers to colour in - with year-by-year facts, quotes and memories giving social history and context printed alongside each one.
Mills & Boon‘s book launches as a wave of adult colouring books continues to sweep the UK with experts citing the art of colouring in as a great way to exercise mindfulness and de-stress.
Publisher Lisa Milton said: “Colouring is a wonderful way to relax and be creative; there’s something very nostalgic and comforting about it.
“The Art of Romance takes you on a fantastic journey back in time, remembering what romance was like when your grandparents met or even when you had your first kiss! With Mills & Boon’s beautiful artwork as inspiration, it is a wonderful way to unwind.”
