Like the first reviewer, I have the Japanese version of this book. Bought from Amazon Japan - very easy process by the way. They have some beautiful colouring books that are not yet available in the UK. If you're a fan of the Romantic Tale trilogy (I do hope there will be a fourth) you will enjoy My Colorful Town. The paper is off-white and a good thickness though I've only used pencils and wouldn't like to say whether or not pens would bleed through. The drawings are very detailed and while there is scope for those who like to add their own art work, at the same time there isn't loads of empty space for those who don't. I fall somewhere in the middle camp - I like to add in a curtain or two, or a few leaves, anything simple that makes me feel like a proper artist!

4.0 out of 5 stars Cute illustrations of a make-believe town with two types of paper used in printing – printed both sides of the page 8 Feb. 2017
By iiiireader - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This is a really cute coloring book based on the imaginary story of a young girl walking through her town and seeing all of stores and other sights to see. The hand-drawn illustrations are very well done and will provide many hours of coloring fun. While the young girl is present in most designs, in some we get to see her town/shops as she does.

The only slightly odd thing I discovered about the book is that it seems that two types of paper were used. They are both the same color (very light ivory) but the texture is different. Most of the pages have a slightly rough feel when I run my thumb across them. There are a few (less than half) that feel very smooth when I do the same test. I've only had this happen once before with a book, so I don't think this common and I question whether it was planned or not.

As my pencils react slightly differently to both types of paper, I knocked a star off my rating because of this issue. In the comments area below, I will provide a full listing of the various coloring medium I used to test both styles of paper. The only slight difference I noted was with pencils.

Apart from that, I really like the book. It is smaller than many of these style books (at only 9 x 9 inches) but I can still color the detailed drawings fairly easily. There are some area that have intricate and smaller elements to color.

This is what I experienced while coloring and testing this book:

68 pages of designs inspired by imaginary town (not including Title or intro pages)

Designs are both sides of page with many two-page spreads

Paper is light ivory, medium weight, non-perforated and some pages are slightly rough while others are fairly smooth.

Sewn Binding

Many designs spread into the binding area (especially, of course, the two-page spread designs.)

Alcohol-based markers bled through the page.

Water-based markers either left noticeable shadows or bleed through in small spots.

India ink pens and gel pens left colorful shadows on the back of the page. Gel pens took a longer time than normal to dry.

Coloring pencils worked well with this paper. I was able to get good color from both wax and oil-based pencils. I was able to layer the same and multiple colors fairly easily.

The rougher texture paper took the pigment well in light layers while the smoother texture paper took pigment well with one coat. Blending (with a blender stick) worked best with the rougher texture paper. I was able to blend with the smooth paper but it took a lighter touch to keep it from smearing.

4.0 out of 5 stars A sweet little book 7 April 2017
By Melisa - Published on Amazon.com

A very sweet little coloring book. The book is on the smaller side, but it takes pencils well (markers would bleed through). My only complaint would be the large amount of buildings to color (the book follows her through her town). Just seems like a lot of brown/gray to color, unless you want to start coloring buildings​ interesting colors ;) Side note--since the girl is shown repeatedly, I would suggest coloring her the first time and keeping track of what colors​ you use so she can look the same throughout the book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cute book 30 Mar. 2017
By DebW - Published on Amazon.com

I love these books that tell a story as well as give me artistic inspiration. The pages are smaller than most, but not really disappointing at all. There are pictures on both front and back pages. Very cute book and won't take days of coloring to finish.

Update: I still love these pictures and this book. I am now coloring a two page picture and I should've known I would want more detail and it is taking a while to complete. I think I started on it last weekend. I finished the first page and got a good bit done on the second page. I like to take time to blend colors and put in extras to make it more interesting. I have one caveat. I have already peeled off paper in two places on the first side. The paper is slick, very little tooth, and I chose oil based colors. Not a good combination but I am learning as I go. I would love to see this book with some paper than has a little more tooth. It is very slick and it is not holding as much color as I would like for it to. Still, an adorable book. I may end up tracing some of the pages on more toothy paper (is that a term?) and see if I can get better performance.
p.s. I hate those two little holes. They might as well be craters!

4.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful book! 26 Feb. 2017

I love the pictures in this book, they are fun and the detail is great. The ONLY thing that I don't like about this coloring book is the texture of the paper. It doesn't take the colored pencils very well. It's like it is too slick. Other than that, I love it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Super Cute! 16 April 2017
By Jessica R. - Published on Amazon.com

Adorable book with super cute images. Paper is medium-thick and images are printed on both sides of the paper. It's smaller than your Johanna Basford sized books which makes it's ideal for travel. Love this book and can't wait to start coloring in it!
