Press has brought out its own range of adult coloring books
and here is the latest one to get colorists in the festive
mood. There are over eighty designs in here ranging from whole
page pictures to smaller motifs. Choose from Santas, angels,
decorated trees, excited children, snowy houses, bedecked
fireplaces and more. All drawn in a style reminiscent of Art
Nouveau and featuring figures in Victorian costumes; as it
says on the back part of the fun of coloring is to let "the
strain of modern life fall away" so a vintage style is
ideal! All the images are printed on one side of good quality
white paper (which is midway between paper and thin card)
so you can color using anything you like including markers
and paints. Pictures are not too intricate so older children
can join in too and if you are stuck for what to do there
are sixteen pages of precolored motifs to give you ideas.
Many of the pictures would be ideal as a starting point for
craft projects and while this is NOT a public domain book
in any way it says on the title page that you can reproduce
pictures for your own personal use (eg cut out for cards)
or for charity sales. This is an excellent quality coloring
book that is sure to give hours of seasonal pleasure.
If you cannot find a good range of origami materials locally
for a list of suppliers.
