coloring books are enjoying a current wave of popularity as
a stress reliever, and Search Press have brought out several
already. Here is a new one unlike the others that invites
the colorist into a magical woodland world.
Lose yourself in a tangle of trees, birds, animals, flowers
and more, and while you color, keep a look out for a selection
of hidden drawings. The paper is a cream color instead of
the usual white, giving the book a vintage feel like an old
children's book. This is echoed in the ink, which is a dark
gray with a slightly waxy look to it, a novel appearance.
Pictures are detailed indeed, suiting sharp eyes and the finest
of pens and are printed on both sides of the page. This means
you get twice as much for your money, but you are more limited
in what you use to color the drawings. I would suggest colored
pencils or gel pens to eliminate bleed-through rather than
the saturated colors of felt pens and paints. Pictures vary
from the type covering the whole page to those you can finish
drawing yourself, and frames to draw something inside. There
is even a "this book belongs to" page to write your
name in. Colorists looking for a challenge will find many
happy hours await them with this intricate and imaginative
If you cannot find a good range of origami materials locally
for a list of suppliers.
