We reported a while ago that coloring books are the Next Big Thing. In case you weren’t sure, though, the Los Angeles Times has said that Bantam is gearing up to publish a Game of Thrones coloring book written by series author George R.R. Martin.
It’s being touted as an “adult coloring book,” which will not come as a surprise to anyone familiar with Martin’s famously violent books or the somehow even more violent HBO show based on them.
In an election year, though, it’s unsurprising that publishers aren’t restricting themselves to coloring books based on super-violent television series.
There are also coloring books, not necessarily aimed at adults, featuring presidential candidates such as Ted Cruz and Hillary Rodham Clinton. (In the latter, you can color the former secretary of State’s pantsuits with whichever shade you like.) And then there’s “Color Me Drunk” and “Unicorns Are Jerks,” neither of which are probably appropriate for your kindergartner.
When it comes to the Game of Thrones coloring book, though, get your crayons ready for the autumn.
