LOFTY COLOURING BOOK: It's the rage this holiday season. People are mad for unique colouring books and the most unusual people are getting into the act. On Nov. 25, a pile of fans squeezed themselves into the FrenchWay Café on Lilac Street to check out the book launch of Felix Kuehn's unusual colouring books, which include intricate historical and religious scenes. Some of them are easy to work with, but other patterns are detailed and will provide a challenge for expert hobbyists.Kuehn's art can be found online at www. avvakumart.com. The most startling colouring page depicts a ferocious roaring lion wrestling a skeleton."It might look to some people like the story is about somebody's relationship, but the truth is I drew that one to entertain my grandson," Kuehn says with a laugh.His book, which looks like an old-fashioned hymnal, is available at McNally Robinson Booksellers at $24.95.
