Product Description

Product Description

Adult colouring-book fans will delight in these beautifully drawn and inviting idyllic settings. Created by illustrator and paper-cutting artist Mihoko 'garden' Kurihara, 'Harmony of Nature' presents pastoral vignettes both whimsical and serene: squirrels and birds, field mice and rabbits, deer, butterflies, foxes and more, all surrounded by halcyon havens of lush florals. Each drawing imparts a welcome sense of calm and the book also includes eight pages of aspirational full-colour art plus two heavy-stock pages that can be cut out and used for framing or gift tags.

About the Author

Born in Tokyo in 1983, Mihoko 'garden' Kurihara is a self-taught illustrator and paper-cutting artist. She also studied engraving and glassblowing before starting her career as an accessories designer. In 2005, she became a full-time freelance artist. She has since produced many illustrations for books, magazines and cartoons and has designed products for companies such as UNIQLO. She is the author of several paper-cutting books in Japan, where she also lives. You can visit her website at www.gardenote.com.

Be careful. This is indeed a lovely colouring book. However, I had finished colouring and decided to put a pale background colour on to enhance the flowers. I shaded in the background, placed some kitchen towel behind the page and wiped my water pen on some kitchen towel to remove most of the water so I didn't over-apply. It ruined the page. It made the paper lift and showed through onto the reverse of the page. 3 hours wasted. I wouldn't have minded so much if the book wasn't supposed to be used with watercolour but at the beginning the author/illustrator actually says she recommends water-colour pencils. If it hadn't been for this I would have awarded it 5 stars.

Fast delivery and in good order. This is one of the best coloring books I have come across. The mice, butterflies, and astonishing blossoms are magnificent. There is nothing cheaply drawn, no shortcuts, or delirious repetitions. A keepsake.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful garden/nature scenes – printed on both sides of non-perforated page 2 Nov. 2015
By iiiireader - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a very pretty book of excellent hand-drawn nature designs. It is in the kind of square format that many of the artist coloring books are now taking. The cover is quite lovely with touches of red foil on it. The designs center around animals and plants you would find outside in the garden or in the woods. There are mice, birds, deer, rabbits, squirrels, owls and cats. There are many designs of flowers and leaves.

I counted 55 separate designs. Of these designs, 12 of them span across two pages. A few of the pages of these in my book did not line up and were off slight. On the other hand, most of the designs could be considered a single page designs and colored as such. That is my current plan for most of them.

The book is printed on both sides of the non-perforated white pages. The pages are a nice thickness. The binding is sewn in rather than glued. Rather oddly, the last two pages are purposely left with blank pages on the backside of the design. It made me wonder why the artist/publisher did not do this for all the pages as they were aware that it was something the colorist would want.

All of my markers bled through on this paper while none of my gel pens did. The paper accepted my color pencils well and allowed for blending nicely.

For some reason, Amazon has two versions of this book listed (same artist/same publisher). They seem to be the same size although one has a lighter weight. I am going to list my review in both listings, so you can see what is in the book. I don't know if the lighter, less expensive version is made with different materials or if there is merely a glitch in the system. I purchased the more expensive one because that was the one which was available when I looked at the book.

This is a really beautiful book of designs but this book could have been great improved by printing on one side and having perforated paper. I don't detract any points for this but point it out for the artist and publisher to consider in the future. There are a good number of colorists who will not purchase this book based on one or both of these criteria.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful but printed on both sides and not scored 25 Jan. 2016
By PaulaP - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a beautiful book with very appealing designs that I hope might be suitable name signs for preemies in the NICU I worked. The one very bad thing is that the pages are not scored and they are printed on both sides. I had to cut them out with a razor blade and then do a straight cut with my paper cutter. I also loved the patterns so much that I ordered another and did the same thing. I wish this company would score the pages as I have seen others in the series that are the same.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome art work and printed on super-fine smooth paper 2 Feb. 2016
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Awesome art work and printed on super-fine smooth paper. The only downside is that a lot is double sided. I had my copy spiral bound at Staples. This is a definite keepsake book. Hoping she comes out with another book.
