As far as I know there isn't an English language edition as yet, and I don't know if there are any plans to produce one. There is a fair bit of narrative in the book, but don't let the fact that it's in Polish put you off - you can get a good translation using an online site if you're keen to know what it says (basically a bit of an explanation about the story).
From the review I'd read, I knew that the images were fairly darkly inked, but the completed pages I'd seen were stunning. i admit that when I first opened the book I was a wee bit concerned at just how dark most of the images are, but I'm now halfway through my first picture and it really does come to life when you start to add colour.
I normally use coloured pencils, but as I'd recently bought a set of Derwent Inktense pencils but not used them much I thought I'd try them in this book, and they could have been made for each other - the Inktense are very vibrant and they work amazingly well with the style of this book (I'm planning to colour other pages with pencil to see how well they work).
Even better, the paper quality is, I think, the best of all the colouring books that I have. It's bright white and pretty heavy in weight and I've had no bleed through, and only a tiny bit of buckling when using water to active the pencils (which vanished when the page dried).Read more ›
This book is gorgeous the illustrations are perfect karolina's art is second to none
The paper quality in this book is also fantastic a lovely smooth feel quite thick perfect for coloured pencils , markers and also water colours the paper seems to take the watercolour really well without buckling as long as you don't saturate the paper of course
If you haven't already purchased this book then your missing out
The title translates as On the Other Side of Sleep which I’ve guessed to mean that it’s showing a dreamy fantasy land and that’s exactly what you get inside, surreal, weird, wonderful and ethereal images that would fit right in to a dream land.
The book itself is 22cm square, paperback with flexible card covers with a partially coloured image from inside the book, the inside covers are a sage green colour. The spine is glue-bound and you will need to be a little careful with it to avoid loosening the pages over time. The images are printed double-sided and are a mixture of single and double-page spreads with the majority being single pages, they are all full-page designs that reach the edges so a little of some of the images can be lost into the spine. The paper is bright white, medium/thick and smooth but not shiny, though, in most of the images the paper looks a little grey due to the printing (this isn’t a negative, more on this later). Water-based pens don’t bleed or shadow and pencils work well on the paper despite it not having much texture, I used Derwent Inktense Pencils activated with water and the paper held up very well with almost no warping or buckling and any that did occur was because of my inexperience and lack of ability to be sparing enough with water!
The artwork is really unusual, in fact everything about the content and style of this book is unlike anything else I’ve seen hence the whole paragraph dedicated to it.Read more ›
