-Format- One important factor to note about this book before purchasing is its size. It roughly measures 13.5 x 1.1 x 17.7 so it is
considerably smaller than most colouring books you might be familiar with, however, this makes it the ideal "pocket sized companion" -great to pop in a handbag and bring with you on your travels- will definitely while away the time and beat the boredom:) The images are double sided and the paper is bright white. It's not artist quality but its thicker than standard printer paper.
-Illustrations- The most important part of course! Emma Farrons has done a wonderful job creating this colouring book. There are many pocket colouring books on the market but this is the best I've seen. It's jam-packed full of soothing images (112 pages in total) such as highly ornate birds, decorative leaves, patterned mushrooms, teacups, cute sleeping foxes, tranquil waves and of course a lot of intricate patterns/kaleidoscopic/patchwork type images. The line work is not quite perfect: no exact triangles, perfect circles or super straight lines- so all perfectionists like me don't have to be too pernickety when colouring! All of the images are highly intricate and really detailed offering plenty for you to focus on and to encourage mindfulness and relaxation.
-Which pens/pencils should I use in this book?- As the images are double sided alcohol markers (Sharpies, Copics, Spectrum noir etc.) aren't suitable as they will bleed through and ruin the reverse page, watercolour will of course buckle the paper. I personally recommend using either pencils or water based markers/fineliners (Staedtler triplus fineliners, staedtler fibre tips,
Stabilo fineliners/fibre tips, crayolas etc.) Fineliners are probably your best option as the designs are very intricate and so a fine tip is ideal! Remember to always pop a sheet of paper behind the page your working on to prevent ink/pencil transfer:) You really can go mad with the colours- everything and anything, you're not limited to a strict colour scheme!
-Why I love it!- You really can't go wrong with this book- at such an affordable price, there's tons of images to colour which would keep you going for years! Images are so relaxing to colour and really take your mind of everything else for a while! If your new to adult colouring this book is a good one to start with.
Overall, I just love this book, as the title suggests its ideal for busy people, most of us get stressful at times and there really is nothing better than to take a few moments out of your day to relax and colour, cuppa in hand:)
15 minutes a day mindfulness colouring in the shapes does wonders. I find that sometimes these books can make me too intense in finishing the picture! Okay, yes that is opposite of what it is supposed to do, but I am sure some of you know what I am talking about. This book has some really mindless shapes that doesn't do that.
Bonus is that it is not massively large so neatly sits on your bookshelf.
I am so happy that colouring for adults has taken off and that there are now adult themes rather than having to colour in pictures of teddy bears! It's been so nice to kick off my shoes after a long day in work and settle down with my pencils and this book- there is something very therapeutic in doing that and this book really does serve the purpose. I don't know how I'm going to get any housework done now though!!
I was surprised to see so many drawings in such a little book , which is ideal for carrying in your handbag !! I can honestly say I had so much fun and I did find colouring in relaxing ! Solenoid the drawings aren't the beat to be colouring in but there were only a handful of drawings that weren't to my taste!!
Would recommend if you are going away or on a long journey or even just having a chill in your garden.
I wouldn't recommend this. Buy a larger book!
