Here's a compilation of coloring books for the discerning adult who's never gotten over the joy of cracking open a fresh coloring book and enjoying a quiet afternoon with just you and your Crayola 64-Pack. Chances are though, once you left elementary school, it was no longer cool to color, so you begrudingly put away the effects of childhood. Well, screw that! Below, we have an awesome list of coloring books not just for kids. In fact, you have to be old (like, gasp, at least in your twenties) to even understand why any of these are as great as they are. Step aside, children.
