New Releases, New Formats!

October 5, 2017

Boost your coolness and calmness as you explore Thunder Bay’s diverse lineup of adult activity books! Whether you’re looking for a quick recharge during your lunch break or want to unwind at home in the evening, these books offer myriad ways to relax while you unleash your creative energy.

Coloring books are seemingly everywhere these days, but perhaps none are as unique as the titles in the Querkles series by master puzzle designer Thomas Pavitte. Each Querkle begins as a jumble of overlapping circles on a blank page, but as you color them in according to the code, a recognizable image takes shape. Choose your own color palette or work in monochrome with a pencil—whichever method you use, the results are nothing short of astounding!

Also from Thomas Pavitte are the books in the 1000 Dot-to-Dot series. Each volume contains 20 intricate puzzles with color-coded numbers so that you never lose your place, and the finished illustrations are so detailed that they can be colored in to create dazzling artworks. Choose from among your favorite subjects—music icons, cityscapes, animals, art masterpieces, and even Marvel super heroes—for hours of enjoyment. Check out all of our Dot-to-Dot titles here.

For a different type of activity that engages your brain, check out the Tangrams Sticker Book, a collection of 75 puzzles that require you to arrange seven geometric shapes into the form of an object such as an animal, human figure, or vehicle. Although Tangrams are simple in concept, these puzzles will give your brain a thorough and satisfying workout.

More sticker fun can be found in Extreme Stickering—these activity books include 15 jigsaw-style puzzles that are completed directly on the page with the included stickers. The pages start as blank tessellated grids with a shape for each sticker to be placed, and as you add the stickers one by one, a majestic and colorful image emerges. Try Extreme Stickering Animals and Extreme Stickering Day of the Dead!

Thomas Pavitte has created a new type of mind-bending graphic puzzle in Spiroglyphics: Music Icons, available in November! At first, all you see are simple spirals, but when you look a little closer and start to color between the lines, you'll see the face of a music icon begin to take shape. This remarkable collection of 20 puzzles features music legends such as Elvis Presley, Madonna, David Bowie, and Tina Turner. Put on some of your favorite music, grab a felt-tip pen, and transform a set of simple lines into an amazing work of art!

Whichever activity you choose for making the most of your “me time,” Thunder Bay Books has you covered—with coloring, dot-to-dots, stickers, puzzles, and oodles of relaxation.
