5.0 out of 5 stars Fairy Tales Coloring Book 21 Mar. 2017
By Angie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Fairy Tales–previously published as Sagolikt–is a super adorable coloring book depicting characters and imagery from Swedish fairy tales. While I’m not familiar with Swedish stories, I still recognized several of the pages. Even without knowing what story I was looking at, every page is enchanting and gorgeous.

Fairy Tales is a paperback, but the cover is very thick card stock. The inside flaps do fold out to reveal more coloring areas at the front and back. The actual paper is very thick and slightly off white. But alcohol based markers do bleed through, and each page is printed on both sides. However, one thing that I absolutely love is that none of the coloring pages are two-page spreads, so nothing gets lost in the binding. Some of the drawings do go all the way to the binding, but the spine bends easily enough to lie the book flat.

The artist of Fairy Tales has a very unique and recognizable style. She uses a lot of stripes and circles to create detail in all of her illustrations. At first it looks a bit busy, but ultimately I loved that it breaks up open spaces and adds more interesting texture. Even the girls have circles on their cheeks, making them stand out. And her animals are absolutely adorable!

Fairy Tales quickly became one of my all-time favorite coloring books. The quality is outstanding and added to the artist’s distinct style, creates something very special. I’ll definitely be looking forward to her next coloring book.
5.0 out of 5 stars 90 plus pages of Cute, Stylized Designs – printed on both sides of the page 18 April 2017
By iiiireader - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is my first coloring book by Emelie Lidehall Oberg. The designs cover a wide range of subjects. While there may be some fairy tales designs included, for the most part, the designs appear to be a range of both fantasy and still life (flowers, dresses, etc.) The artist has a unique design style with her creatures all having cute round eyes. Her people have round cheeks and predominate eyelids. They are quite different from other designers and make for a fun coloring experience.

The designs are detailed but are not too intricate and do not have tiny little spots to try to color. Because the book is printed two-sided, I'm being very careful with what I use to color in it. I am avoiding using my alcohol-based markers as those bleed through the page (you can see what my test results were with various medium below.)

The cover is card stock rather than the hardcover I associate with this publisher. The cover is light ivory/antique white with green and pink elements as well as gold metallic accents. The front and back attached covers have a flap and there are designs on the interior which can be colored.

This is what I found while coloring in this book and testing it with my coloring medium.

90+ pages stylized designs

Printed on both sides of the page; no two-page spread designs

Paper is heavyweight, ivory color, somewhat smooth, and non-perforated.

Sewn binding which can easily be snipped to remove a number of pages at a time.

Most designs merge into the binding area. I can open the book fairly flat for coloring by breaking the spine.

Alcohol-based markers bleed through the page. If you use these, you will have ink seep through and mar the design on the back of the page.

Water-based markers, gel pens and India ink pens do not bleed through the page.

Colored pencils work well with the paper. I was able to blend, layer the same and multiple colors using both oil and wax-based pencils with ease.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great art work but 4 pages are stuck together. 23 Mar. 2017
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The art in the pictures is wonderful. I've been really looking forward to getting this book as soon as it came out. My book came having a small problem. The first 4 pages are not cut apart so there are 4 pages I can't get to them to color them. It is clearly a manufacturing problem.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cute Book! 28 Mar. 2017
By Ukknight - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Really cute book. Simple designs that you can color quickly, but that still look gorgeous. The paper looks great. The only reason I gave four stars instead of five is that my personal preference is Hanna Karlzon, Johanna Basford and Millie Marotta. If you like the art, you will love this book. And, there are no pattern repeat pictures, which are a personal dislike in a coloring book!

I have purchased many adult coloring books and this one is so beautiful. The pictures are so pleasing to the eye. The content is whimsical which makes you want to complete the pictures.
