Here’s another coloring book I found on NetGalley. Actually, it’s another one from the River Grove Books, you can check my review of Meditations through Coloring. Just like that one “Coloring for all seasons” is an ebook only [unless you live in the US and are lucky enough to be accepted as a reviewer by the publisher]. That means I’ll be telling you mostly about the designs and some traits of the book that can be checked via Amazon, like the size and page count.
Coloring for All Seasons: Spring by River Grove Books
I received a copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
This book is all about spring and nature. Images are filled with flowers, butterflies and cute animals. Mostly flowers, though. Just like in the other book by River Grove this one also begins with an introduction about springtime in various places and cultures. It’s short but interesting.
8,5 x 8,5 inches (about 22 x 22cm) which makes it rather small, but the designs leave just enough place to color, so it might actually be a good size.
The page count
This book has 96 pages filled with images, which I find is a great amount. Enough to keep you busy for a while and to help you relax while coloring.
Since images are the key point of coloring books these should be something that grabs you attention, makes you eyes hungry and makes you want to pick up your favorite coloring medium and bring these black and white pages to life.
Some of these images can do so, but not as many as I’d like. Some of the images look a bit too messy. On some of them, the artist tries to show the shading on the flowers and it makes them darker, filled with lines that colorists don’t really need.
I found only a few unique images here, most of them looked rather similar and I think variety is needed in coloring books.
The images are still pretty and they will bring lots of joy while coloring. I’d love to get my hands on the ones with butterflies – these were one of the unique images that really grabbed my attention.
