When I received my copy of this book, I spent hours flipping each page, seeing 2 different images in one, and giggling like a little kid. I realized that in order to color one of the images, I would have to color it twice - it just so happens that Mr. Slattery provided TWO pages of each image, just for that reason! He also lists what the images are at the front of the book, in case your eyes don't quite catch the 2 different images right away. This was helpful for a couple of the designs, because my brain only wanted to see ONE image!
This is a standard size coloring book with approx. 60 lb paper. The images are single-sided; it's recommended to use a blotter sheet behind the page you're working on to protect the image on the next page.
I highly recommend this book for colorists of any age and any skill level, as the images range from pretty easy to fairly complex, but are all entertaining. The image I've attached to this review is colored as a giraffe and a penguin (same image colored differently and flipped upside-down). I later noticed that what I colored as a giraffe is actually supposed to be a caribou! (whoops!) Regardless, it was so much fun to color - literally double the fun!

This is a new book by an artist new to me--Trick Slattery. This book is one-of-a-kind, and quite unique. Each illustration can be colored twice. Same image-different view. These images can be seen in more than one way.
This book contains 25 illustrations like this, and you get 2 of each so that you may color each view. There is no choosing or having to photocopy to color the alternate view. This is such an added bonus. He explains that 17 of these are original illusions and 8 were ideas inspired by classic illusions, all drawn in his unique, quirky, strange and whimsical style.
It has a nice, pleasing cover, showing one of his images partially colored in both views. At the beginning of the book are pages to put the colorists name, standard copyright information, and a page that the artists tells you a bit about how the book came to be. Next is a page where he explains what each illusion is with it's alternative view.
The image quality is clean and dark. There is no fuzzy, pixelated or skipped lines. The illustrations are almost full page with enough white space border surrounding the images to allow for easy removal for framing. Although, the images are single-sided, the paper weight is about medium. This is fairly standard weight for coloring books, so you will need to put extra paper behind the image you are coloring if using markers or some gel pens. They will tend to bleed through. You can use most medium on the paper, but if using watercolors or other wet medium, I suggest photocopying to heavier paper, such as 110# weight card stock, mixed media paper, or watercolor paper, so it can withstand the use of water and not damage it.
The illustrations are detailed, however, not so intricate that would create too much difficulty for those with vision or dexterity problems. Most of those areas would more than likely be colored the same as surrounding area, so the colorist should not have to get into many tiny areas. There is a fair amount of open spaces.
At the back of the book is a tester page to allow you to test your colors. It also lists his website, where you can follow his work and get some free coloring pages.
This book is quite unique and fun to color. I would recommend it for most ages. I really enjoy this book.
