5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful patterns 8 Jun 2013
Format:Staple Bound|Verified Purchase
I bought this for use in my class during an RME topic on Islam. The kids absolutely love colouring in the pages which I photocopy. I have created a lovely display with their efforts.

5.0 out of 5 stars The BEST design book yet! 8 Jun 2012
By Jules - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Staple Bound|Verified Purchase
Even better than the 'pasiley','kalidescope' or the 'tile', ect., in my opionion this is the best design book yet. Beautiful, clean fine line illustrations.(These designs remind me of the Art Nouveau Design book). Some done like mandala design, some full page, some very rich detail, and intricate, while some pages are designs with larger areas. 30 designs, illustrations on both sides. The quality of the paper could be better, (but not for this price) it is the dover 'green paper'. I have begun scanning my books before I color in them, and reprinting onto either card stock, quality art paper, or water color paper. Then I only need to purchase the book once, and color the same design as many times as choose. Not being familar with this illustrator Nick Crossling, I will be looking for more of his art in the future, these are very beautifully illustrated. Great for adults, and teens, would most likely not recommend this book for children. Good for all mediums. Now, I can't wait to go start coloring in this book!

5.0 out of 5 stars this is a treasure 23 Jan 2013
By Carolyn Falkowski - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Staple Bound|Verified Purchase
I have purchased many "adult" coloring books with intricate designs made of many delicate areas to fill with color. This is one of my favorites. I use coloring as a means to help control chronic pain. No, it doesn't make the the pain vanish, but it entertains and requires concentration. This makes pain more bearable. I am a ninth grade science teacher. Several of my students have seen this book and are fascinated by it. It even appeals to 14 year olds and that is really a compliment. I have used high quality colored pencils, watercolor pencils, metallic pencils and india ink markers. All work well and do not bleed through.

5.0 out of 5 stars the best one i have bought in years 26 Aug 2012
By Roseart Pens - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Staple Bound|Verified Purchase
I was so excited when i first received this book. Up until now my favorites have been "Paisley Designs", "Decorative Tile designs" and "mandalas". This ranks with them and please Dover produce more and more of this type of design coloring book because they are the best. I appreciate the company being ''green' and as another contributor says copy or scan the originals onto better paper if you are not satisfied. I always do that when the designs are worth coloring in more than once as it is interesting to explore different color combinations and negative as opposed to positive aspects. Thank you Nick Crossling!!!!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Stunning coloring book - intricate, traditional and satisfying using personal color choices 10 Mar 2014
By Bella-Bella (By the sea ~~~) - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Staple Bound|Verified Purchase
The very beautiful Arabesque designs in this coloring book reflect traditional and highly precise geometric designs. These designs are equally mathematically precise and artfully pleasing. In the Islamic tradition there is no distinction between the natural world, mathematics and science. This art form is reverend in most mosques and is famously depicted throughout the ancient Alhambra in Spain. There is esoteric meaning behind every design that is still being understood by scholars and the like.

The 30 designs in this book beg for bright traditional tiled colors. Some are mandala like and some are more of the Arabic tile look. All are just gorgeous. They can be carefully done with markers, colored pencils, gel pens and metallic pens or a combination of all of these. These do take more time to do because the patterns are very intricate and require more concentration than other mandala coloring books I have worked. The results are stunning and worth the time, effort and creativity.

Four star because the designs are on medium quality paper, front and back. The work done on one page will show through onto the next page. In particular, if you use alcohol markers, I suggest copying onto heavy cover or card stock paper so there is no bleed through. This book is staple bound, so easy to carefully pull apart for personal use copying. Highly recommend this purchase if you are really into mandala coloring books.
