EDWINA MCNAMEE IS an illustrator from Ardee, Louth who’s stumbled on to a rather delightful idea:

A sweary Christmas book for Irish adults.

It’s called Festive as F*ck – and it’s released on Amazon tomorrow

The Amazon description is straight and to the point:


Edwina tells DailyEdge.ie that she and her husband have been travelling around Europe because of his work, so – as an illustrator already – she came upon the colouring books thanks to the circumstances:

I needed a job but because we kept moving I couldn’t get a normal job so the coloring books are working great

The festive release has 25 pages of cheeky outlines for the swear-happy person in your life

And they certainly play up to our linguistic strengths as a nation

Delightfully immature, too

And perhaps the most universal emotion we all feel at this time of year is included

Some people have even been printing them out and making cards by printing them out from the Etsy page
