Can there be such a thing as too many coloring books? Of course the answer is no, but the adult coloring book craze is reaching a fever pitch in 2016, so we had to ask to be sure. More than 130 adult coloring book titles will be released throughout the rest of the year, with everyone from Lonely Planet to Harlequin getting in on the trend.

Even if you’re a coloring fanatic, that is a daunting number of pages to color. But on the plus side, you’re spoiled for choice. We picked out some of the most beautiful, bizarre, and nostalgic titles coming out this year to keep you going. So, whether you’re new to the therapeutic coloring scene, or you’ve burned through every coloring book with a cat in it, you won’t be without a nice, pencil-ready canvas. Find them wherever adult coloring books are sold—which, it seems, is everywhere now.
