Product Description

Review

""Dracula" is highly sensational....An immense amount of energy, a certain degree of imaginative faculty, and many ingenious and gruesome details are there. At times Mr. Stoker almost succeeds in creating the sense of possibility in impossibility."--"Atheneum" (June 26th, 1897)"The audacity and horror of "Dracula" are Mr. Stoker's own. A summary of the book would shock and disgust; but we must own that, though here and there in the course of the tale we hurried over things with repulsion, we read nearly the whole with rapt attention."--"Bookman "(August, 1897)"Mr. Bram Stoker gives us the impression of having deliberately laid himself out in "Dracula" to eclipse all previous efforts on the domain of the horrible....For all these, and a great many more thrilling details, we must refer our readers to the pages of Mr. Stoker's clever but cadaverous romance."--"London Spectator" (July 31st, 1897) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Review

"Full of bloodthirsty vampires, gothic patterns, dramatic landscapes and nightmarish figures. It's eerie, it's dramatic and it's great good fun." (- The Book Bag) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is a wonderful edition of a classic novel, beautifully produced and presented. I was pleasantly surprised at how well this hardback book was packaged; it comes in a sturdy, red slipcase which is in turn housed in a nice, protective box. You would have to be extremely unlucky for this to be damaged in transit.

I don't really have much more to add to existing reviews, except to say that this really is a must-have edition if you are a collector or even if you just like the novel. I already have two other copies of Dracula and purchased this as an investment as it is sure to become a sought after item in years to come. I think this quality product is well worth the asking price.

Please take a look at the photos I submitted to get a better idea of what is included in this beautiful package.

i was very surprised by this book, held in great suspense all through the book i could hardly out it down at times. Dracula is a name everyone is familiar with and all the vampire lore we see today all stems from this book in which the Count as captivated readers imaginations ever since and continues to. from the start the reader will notice a very different writing style to any other, the whole book is all written as a series of journal entries, letters and newspaper clippings from its principle characters and this gives it an incredible feeling like as if you are actually reading their very journals as you get lost in the story. the story builds over time, along with the suspense, at times it can feel like its dragging on but your are kept in mystery much of the time and that is what pushes you to keep reading as you never know how its going to turn out. this version has a great introduction (don't read it before the book) which explains the themes of the book and how the idea for it came to the author. while the characters do lack dept that though prevents from getting drowns in minor details and allows you to concentrate on the story itself which in parts will have you totally engrossed in it. a fantastic book that should be read by all just merely for the sake of reading a book that all have heard of but few have actually read.

I first read Dracula by Bram Stoker on my first holiday abroad. I had started it before I went and couldn't leave it at so I read it in the evenings on the balcony and in the daytime sunbathing by the pool. Not your usual holiday read for a holiday in the sun, yet I still became immersed in this dark novel. Now Dracula has been released as a colouring book with illustrations by Chellie Carroll in Little Tiger Press's Colouring Classics series. Eerie but beautiful illustrations, gothic ornamentation are interspersed with quotes and short passages from the novel.

The book is approximately the same square size as most of the popular colouring books such as those by Millie Marotta and Johanna Basford. It has a striking black and white illustrated cover with red foiled highlights with french flaps front and backwhich has a colourable wallpaper type pattern on the reverse. It has 80 double -sided illustrated pages on beautiful thick paper which is close to cardstock. The pages are both glued and sewn which means you can bend the cover as much as you like to colour into the gutter and the pages won’t fall out. The ink is crisp and fixed so doesn’t transfer to the other pages. This is a classic and classy book. The paper has a good tooth and takes pencils beautifully and you could use waterbased markers here with no worry about them bleeding through. It is a keepsake book, and my only disappointment is that it doesn’t have a lovely nameplate page which would have been in perfect keeping with the book, however that is my only niggle with this beautiful high-quality book.

This review is taken from my blog where I review adult colouring books from a mental health perspective. More images can be found here - colouringinthemidstofmadness.wordpress.com
I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. This book is 25cm square, the same size as most bestsellers, paperback with a thick but flexible card cover which has a wallpaper style design printed on the inside of the dust flaps, the cover is predominantly black with white line drawings and red foiling accents and text. The spine is glue and string bound and is fairly durable but does start to break if you’re particularly persistent with trying to flatten it. The images are printed double-sided and therefore a number of them do enter the spine a little which makes them tricky to colour. The paper is bright white, thick and lightly textured, I experienced no bleeding or shadowing with any of my water-based pens and I was able to get plenty of layers with my coloured pencils; alcohol markers will bleed through. The majority of the images are double-page spreads and a quote from the original book is printed onto each. The images themselves are arranged into chronological order to loosely tell the story and consist of a number of scenes, quotes, patterns and images depicting something mentioned in the displayed quote. There are images of Dracula, inside and outside the castle, forests, women being turned into vampires, vampire paraphernalia, scenes of Whitby, and Dracula’s death. As you’d expect in a book about vampires, there’s a fair amount of blood throughout but sadly the illustrator has decided to fill this in with black throughout the book meaning you’ll need to use a very opaque pencil or paint to make it red.
