Vancouver, Canada (PRUnderground) January 21st, 2016
When Carrie Wong and Witek Radomski launched their second adult coloring book on Kickstarter, they didn’t expect to reach half their goal in less than 24 hours. The couple raised over $3800 by the next morning, and reached their funding goal just days later.
Adult coloring books have seen exponential sales since the trend started in early 2015 and Legendary Worlds aims to capitalize on this by featuring a journey through wild and fantastical landscape illustrations, born from the artists’ imaginations.
The group of seven artists, living in Canada, USA and France are dreaming up scenes of crystal caves, castles in the sky, underwater realms, robot junk-yards, and outer-space vistas.
Their previous book, “Legendary Landscapes” launched in November last year and is now sold in all stores of one of Western Canada’s most shopped, prominent retailers – London Drugs. The book has also received critical acclaim and is rated 5-stars with numerous rave reviews on Amazon.com and Amazon.ca. Legendary Landscapes is currently ranked #71 in Canada on BookManager.
The health benefits of coloring are becoming widely appreciated and many people are finding landscape coloring books to be a therapeutic and relaxing escape in their over-stimulated modern lives.
“We are floored by the amazing colored pieces sent to us every day by people who love the book.” said Witek Radomski. The couple started a coloring community on Facebook where both coloring enthusiasts and adult first-timers post photos of their completed pages.
Witek and Carrie who became recently engaged, work together on the book. “It takes a huge amount of effort to create a huge book like this, but it’s a labor of love,” says Legendary Worlds co-founder, Carrie Wong, “Everyone is asking for landscape coloring books, and we think that our crowdfunding campaign could become the most successful coloring book Kickstarter in history”.
Legendary Worlds is live on Kickstarter until February 9th and will be available in London Drugs and Chapters/Indigo in Canada, as well as Amazon.com and major bookstores in USA in April 2016.
