“With the coming of spring, I am calm again.” – Gustav Mahler
When I saw this book available for advance preview online I thought: hey, how will this work seen as I can't actually colour on it? Sure, it's a big downside not to see the paper quality as that is such an important part of reviewing a colouring book. However, I'm the kind of person who always uses the "look inside" feature on sites like Amazon in order to get an idea of what colouring page styles I'd be getting.
I'd say you're getting a nice range of pretty and varying pictures. This is largely due to this not being a book by a single artist, but instead a collection of images licensed from photo sites. The images comprise of florals and animals/insects.
I like how there's a good range of simple patterned images; some with thin line work and some with thick lines, and how some pages have blank spaces to fill with colour or our own designs. I really enjoyed the quotes throughout.
Many thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for my digital ARC in order to review this book.

I really like how the artwork is very different from page to page. Some of the pages will require much more detailed coloring than some of the others. I can choose the level of difficulty based on my mood. I also like the variation in styles. Some pages are more whimsical while others seem a bit more lifelike. The patterns are really quite beautiful. I was very happy to see that the pages of the book are printed on only one side. There is less of a chance of color bleeding through the page but I would still probably place something under the page if I were using markers. Since the designs are on one side of the page, the art could be removed from the book if you choose.
I would highly recommend this book to anyone wanting to try an adult coloring book. There is nice variety of styles and difficulty to sample. This book was presented to me in a completely charming fashion with colored pencils and flowers surrounding the book. This coloring book would make a wonderful gift. I plan to look for the other seasons in the series soon.
I received a review copy of this book from Greenleaf Book Group.
Coloring for All Seasons: Spring has a lot of variety in terms of details. There are pages that are very easy to color, with large spaces. Then there are pages with lots of small items to fill in. Some pages will have you coloring in the entire page, while others have more empty space in the background. It's easy to find a page that suits your mood and needs. The only pages that I wasn't a huge fan of were the ones that have lots of detail lines within the flowers. It just looked like a lot of black with less space for color.
I definitely recommend Coloring for All Seasons: Spring! I've enjoyed coloring the pages that I've tried so far, and certainly look forward to many, many more hours of coloring. If you like flowers, butterflies, and birds, you should check out this pretty coloring book.
*Disclaimer: I received this book from the publisher for review. No compensation was offered or accepted.
Filled with beautiful flowers, delightful butterflies, and sayings that are heart-warming I found this one very lovely. Since my review copy was digital I didn't actually get to color the pages but the styles of art provided an excellent variety for colorists who enjoy different types from mandalas and tangles to simple line drawings. But as an experienced colorist I'd dare say you cannot go wrong with this one based on the art alone.
If you love coloring and enjoy the Spring season I highly recommend this one! I'm looking forward to seeing what this publisher will do with the other three seasons very, very much.
Notes: Digital review copy provided through NetGalley.
This book would be one that I would very happily buy. There were so many pages that I was excited about and I really like that there is variety (mandalas, whimsical pages, more detailed, etc.) while still keeping with the theme and tone of the book. I have to admit that I have a sweet spot for seasonal or holiday-themed coloring books. It's a fun way to celebrate the season!
The pages are printed single-sided, with blank pages on the back, so bleed-through won't be a concern for those who use markers (or for those who press hard with pencils and might leave textures on the back). Attached are a couple of print-outs I chose to do, both of the more whimsical variety since that is what I'm in the mood for. :)
I received a physical copy of this book, via a Netgalley request, in return for an honest review.
