Just like the beautiful ~grown-up~ colouring books that have recently started appearing on everyone's coffee tables, dot-to-dot books are back.

And they're amazing.

Auckland-born graphic designer Thomas Pavitte, has released a series of books, each filled with incredibly intricate dot-to-dot artworks.


More specifically, each design is made up of 1000 tiny dots for you to connect.

According to the now Melbourne-based Pavitte, each drawing takes between eight and ten hours to design.

"I'm most proud of the Elvis dot-to-dot drawing, and have it framed in my apartment. It was a hard one for me to get right, and I had to redo it a few times until I was happy with it," Pavitte tells BuzzFeed Life.

Themes for the books include iconic masterpieces, cities, icons, and animals.

And as well as being a great way to work on your concentration skills, the end results are damn unique.

Pavitte also tells BuzzFeed Life that much like colouring, people have also reported the dot-to-dot experience to be quite calming: "I’ve had a lot of emails from people telling me that they have found the books very meditative. It came as a big surprise to me that people were finding this use for the books - it’s one of the really nice outcomes for me personally."

In addition to his dot-to-dot designs, Pavitte has also created a series of books of Querkles, which consist of artworks that are made up of different shaded circles.

So, pick a dot or a circle and get busy, guys.
