If my Twitter timeline is any indication, there are only two things people are currently talking about: the 2016 American presidential election and the rise of adult coloring books. Naturally I didn’t think of putting the two together until I noticed a Donald Trump coloring book in my local bookstore’s window and thought, “This is
an SEO goldmine the best way I can spend an afternoon.” I dove into this with the enthusiasm that only comes from someone who found a distraction from cleaning her bathroom. After spending an afternoon in research there are a two things that I now know about coloring books about the presidential candidates. My first takeaway from this is that there were actually fewer coloring books than I expected so now I’m looking at a career change to corner this market. The second point is that my research says that there are three main types of presidential candidate coloring books: the satirical, the attempt at impartial research, and the adoring. That final group can produce some really… creative coloring books, but you’ll get a look at that at the end of the post.
(Note: I can’t speak to the actual content or political slant of any of these coloring books.)
