This is Jasmine Becket-Griffith's second colouring book and follows the same format as the previous one. It's approximately 21.5cm x 27.5cm, so a tiny bit smaller then a standard sheet of paper. The paper inside is of very good quality, slightly off white and non perforated. Each illustration is one sided and the accompanying page contains details of the original painting, including what it was painted on, the size of the painting and the date. Underneath that she gives a little background information on each image ranging from her inspiration when she painted it, why she chose certain colours in the original painting and sometimes a little history on the origin of her painting!
There are 43 full page illustrations and 3 pages made up of 4 smaller images each, totaling 55 illustrations. Each of these is surrounded by a border so there's no colouring next to the spine issues!
You will need to place paper in between the illustrations if using alcohol markers as they do bleed through. I had no issues with gel pens or water based markers. I used mainly Polychromos and Marco Raffine's and was able to get multiple layers with no blending issues.
The illustrations are really beautiful, most have a gothic Halloween vibe but there is a few cuter ones also! Each illustration is based on one of her paintings, so if you're stuck for a colour scheme for any of her work a quick google of the name of the illustration will bring up her original painting in all its beautiful colours!
The book has a gorgeous removable cover and the paper is of high quality. Each picture is single sided with a little verse about the original painting opposite each picture. I have only coloured 1 picture so far and I have used acrylic paint and pencils, all lay down wonderfully. I can't wait to get on and colour more!
I am a big fan of Jasmines strangling series, I find her girls just gorgeous and it is a lot of fun to colour in. The pages are one sided so you can use all different mediums without worrying about ruining the back and the paper quality is second to none!
