Today I’ve got something new for you – a coloring book. I know it might be unexpected, but I always liked coloring and it seems it became at thing lately, so now It’s a bit easier to find new fantastic patterns in actual book format. I don’t have to browse the net and print out pictures (I’m still going to do this, but that’s not the point).
We don’t have that many of these in Poland yet, but they’re coming. Once bookstores started selling them, they will not stop if there’s still profit :P.
But the one I’m going to present you hasn’t come to us yet. I can only review a digital copy, so I won’t tell you how the paper feels and how good it will work with different coloring media, but I can tell you about the designs included here.
Meditations through Coloring by River Grove Books
I received this copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
At the beginning, you’ll find a short introduction about meditation and the designs included in this book. I think it’s a nice touch and as a plus side – it has flower designs on the side, so if you’re not into reading it you can simply color those designs and maybe you’re eyes will wander to the text part too.
Just after the introduction there’s this lovely, intricate flower design. It’s amazing! Flowers and leaves swirl around creating patterns that would perfectly fit to embellish some elven creation in Lord of The Rings movies.
Here’s a sample of images from the book. Don’t expect big ones, for these you will have to get the book, but I wanted to show you what you can expect.
There are over ninety pages filled with these lovely pictures that simply cry for you to color them. So why did I cut half of the star from the rating? I’ve checked the size of the book and it’s 8,5 x 8,5 inches (I had to recalculate these to centimeters to know how big it actually is…) and as much as this size is perfect for most of the designs there are some detailed ones that will be hard to color here. I don’t think it will be much of a problem for anyone like me 😀 but I feel like I should write about it anyway. The book I have now on my desk has about 10 x 10 inches and even with that one I have some troubles coloring the tiny images.
All in all, I think this book is worth your time and money. It looks lovely and it will let your mind relax for hours.
Now be honest – do you want me to review the coloring books that I’ll find or maybe you think it’s pointless and have no interest in seeing these posts?
I won’t make these posts often after all coloring takes time and I won’t be buying tons of these books just for review purpose. I’m thinking once a month maybe?
Let me know 😀
