Lisa Frank to Unveil New Line of Adult Coloring Books

How old are you? I don’t mean to get personal, but for this story it kind of matters. See, depending on your age, you may remember Lisa Frank as that brand that was on all of your folders in middle school, or those stickers you passed out to your friends. The brand has been around for more than 20 years now, and if you’re a kid from the ’90s, then it was your jam. And although it seemed to step out of the limelight recently, the company is still very much a thing, and to prove it, they announced on their Instagram that they have a new line of adult coloring books coming out soon. No seriously, they did. Here:

Now here’s the thing: Lisa Frank the person has been shrouded in mystery for years – there are only two pictures of her that exist on the Internet, and that’s not an easy claim to make today. And when she does interviews, she’s often in the shadows, like here on Great Big Story last year:

Regardless, there are lots of people who love the brand, and I’m betting some of you are adults and would love to bust out a gel pen or 20 and go to town on a coloring book for grown-ups, am I right? If that’s you, just know that Dollar General will be carrying the books next month. What I’m saying is that you should probably get your pen collection ready now, including backups, because I imagine you’ll burn through them pretty quickly.
