5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely Coloring Story Book based “A Christmas Carol” by Charles Dickens – printed on both sides of the page 18 Oct. 2016
By iiiireader - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have purchased a number of the coloring books in this series (A Coloring Classic) and have been really pleased with them. “A Christmas Carol” ranks with the best in the series by way of both the illustrations and the extremely abridged story which accompanies them. In addition to the story, there are two pages at the back of the book which provide really interesting bits of information about Christmas during the Victorian period.

The story hits all of the points that I look for in the tale and the drawings provide a great series of illustrations which match with and enhance the story. While it does not replace the novel, it is a fairly good stand-along story book. I still recommend keeping a copy of the full novel close by as it is such a wonderful tale to revisit during the holidays especially.

The illustrations are well done and are by two artists (Vladimir Aleksic and Kate Ware) but is done so well that the transition between the two is fairly seamless. I would be hard pressed to guess which art was done by which artist. The designs are detailed and some include intricate and small areas to color. Overall, the designs have a flowing and rather elegant look to them.

The cover is in black print on white (with elements you can color) with extensive red foil highlights on the front. Both covers fold out and there are some elements on the flaps that can be colored. The inside of the covers also include some pretty patterns that can be colored as well.

This is what I found while coloring in this book and testing my coloring medium of the paper.

80 Storybook designs pages (including title, intro pages and two pages of Victorian Christmas trivia)

Designs are printed on both sides of the page

Paper is heavyweight, white, slightly smooth, and non-perforated.

Sewn Binding which makes it easy to remove several pages at a time by snipping a few threads.

Designs merge into the binding area.

Some designs spread across two pages with essential elements merging into the binding area.

My copy of the book lined up extremely well on the two page designs.

I could get the book to lay fairly flat by breaking (or creasing) the spine.

Alcohol-based markers slightly bleed through this paper. If you use this medium, you will mar the designs on the back of the page.

Water based markers (except for brush end Tombows) left the slightest indistinct shadow on the back of the page. Tombows did not leave a shadow.

Gel pens and India ink pens did not bleed through this paper.

Colored pencils did well with this paper. I was able to color with light or heavy pigment, layer and blend using both my various wax and oil based pencils. I use a pencil style stick blender for my tests. Hard lead pencils did well and did not dent/score through to the back of the page.
5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful and very well done - includes the story as you go 1 Mar. 2017

I was so happy to find this on Amazon. I had seen it in Costco during Christmas season, and then kicked myself after not buying it. I am not usually drawn to the adult coloring books, but the illustrations in this one are very beautiful, and the fact that it includes the actual story makes it even heirloom worthy. Color it with your kids or yourself and read it every year. Seems like something that would be fun to pass on if it lasts anyway. Very well done, I might look into some of the other adult coloring books from this line as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Will put you in the Christmas spirit. 10 Dec. 2016
By good to go - Published on Amazon.com

Best coloring book I have ever seen. It is going to become a tradition for us like doing a puzzle. I am thinking of completing it someday and putting it in a binder so my daughter can see it when she is an older woman. Pictures are beautiful, good mix of complex and simple. Paper is thick and of great quality.

2.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful, but... 9 Nov. 2016
By Crismon66 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I ready wanted to give this a great review because the book is beautiful. The images are exquisite and it's week made. But, the paper is so smooth, too smooth for coloring. There's no "tooth" on the paper so blending and shading is nearly impossible. I'm new to coloring so only have so many products/techniques at my disposal but none worked . Gamsol, baby oil, different pencils, nothing. I made a mistake and tried to erase it, which I've done in so many other books, and it lifted off the top layer of paper so that there's a white/light spot that can't be colored over. I was planning on enjoying this for so many hours, but I think it's just going to end up being a beautiful picture book.
