The only thing that I have found is that having double sided pages means that when colouring a design where I have already coloured on the previous page (i.e. directly underneath where I am colouring) the pressure from the pencils can cause colours to transfer/imprint on the other designs (although this could of course be partially due to my choice of colouring pencils) - however this is easily remedied by using a piece of plan paper or parchment paper inserted between the designs on the previous pages.
The cover also has flaps, allowing you to keep your place in the book if you don't finish the design in one sitting- and I doubt you would, they are very complex.
The subsequent mental clarity which comes from concentrating on this for an hour or so quite equals traditional meditation... and you've something tangible to show for it!
Quality of paper is outstanding, smooth and thick, takes crayons and water colour equally well. Print lines are perfect and precise. Her imagination and execution of design stunning.
Looking forward to Millie producing more and more!
I can't comment on colours bleeding through the paper when using pens, as I prefer to colour with soft pencils, which I haven't had a problem with.
There are many designs in this book, so it should keep me occupied for quite a long time. If you will excuse me dear reader, I am now off to do some colouring.
