Color and Conjure: Rituals & Magic Spells to Color
There are plenty of adult coloring books out there, including some that promise to help you relax, help you focus, and help you feel better. But Color and Conjure is the first I’ve encountered that mixes actual magic with its coloring.
The idea is simple: a combination of relaxation techniques and spells to better your life by utilizing the focus evoked by concentrating on coloring. Along the way, various pagan gods, legends, and stories are cited, ranging from the Norse gods to the concept of chakras, all to enrich the experience.
The pages to color are farther back in the book, and not only are they on perforated paper but the page numbers are inset behind the perforation so they don’t ruin your final image/spell. Pretty thoughtful presentation overall.
Some of the images — like the one of smartphones on ribbons — are a little underwhelming, but for the most part, they allow for interesting coloring improvisation, even as they fulfill different aspects of the spells or acts of envisioning that are taking place. “Time Waits For Me” was a personal favorite, loaded with detail without feeling crowded.
If you’re looking to get a little more out of your coloring, this might be the place to start.
