This book is amazing. The intricate details are so much fun. You are only limited by your imagination. They are so detailed you will need good fine point colored pencils like Primsacolor Verifine's sold here on Amazon.

You will not be bored with this book. The drawings are almost all complete full pages and take some time to complete. I find them relaxing and challenging at the same time. Very much an adult level book or teen. A small child would not be able to stay in these lines at all.

Having many Dover books I cannot say enough about them. The 4 for 3 deal here at Amazon is great for these high quality books that provide hours of creative relaxing time.

Highly recommend.

I am a true fan of Marty Noble's coloring books, at least the few that really caught my eye (e.g. this one, Decorative Tile, African Designs, and Erte Fashions Coloring Book...and the Medieval Tapestries and Ancient Mexican Designs have also caught my eye and are on my wish list to purchase), but not the stained glass coloring books, and I have several. The stained glass images, printed on vellum, are often too simplistic and I cannot produce the shadowing of the images in the manner I like; nevertheless, the black-n-white drawings in the listed books above are beautiful. Details are superb. Quality paper. The Art Nouveau patterns are all pleasing to the eye in a multitude of ways that I am already working on one as I recover from the flu. Unfortunately (or fortunately, if you are the publisher), the images are printed back-to-back and thus I want two of each book so I can view and potentially not damage the other side that is colored. Yet it is worth it for me as I continually look at my color combinations produced from Noble's adult coloring books; and thus I am extremely pleased with the results. I recommend a good set of artist colored pencils for best coloration and know that with these tools, I can really get the Art Nouveau patterns to be striking like those in real life. That art style is a great favorite of mine and I know I will treasure this book for years to come, that is IF I don't color all the images in the next month! Anyway, these coloring books are DEFINITELY worth investing in and consider exploring the other offerings by Noble. You won't be disappointed.

Take your mental phone off the hook and prepare to reduce that awful load of stress by completing this Art Nouveau Patters book of images for you to color. Get out your very best artist's colored pencils and let the 19th century designs take you away to another time and place.

Beautiful, relaxing, outrageously lovely and most definitely recommended.

Being a lover of art nouveau, and also loving to color & paint, this was a perfect book for me. The designs are beautiful & the paper it's printed on takes different media well. I have used crayons, colored pencils & watercolor pencils & markers. It's a wonderful way to spend a rainy day. It's very relaxing.

I love these coloring books. The patterns to color are always nice. I don't like how they are double sided pages though. I like to color with markers, and it halfway bleeds through the page. So I have to always choose which page I like the most. These would be better books if each came on a separate page.

Coloring for me is very relaxing and this book provided that opportunity for me. I love picking the colors and seeing the final results. These designs are intricate and when finished beautiful.

All the Dover Coloring Books I have are just beautiful and well manufactured with clear distinct lines no matter how intricate the design is. This is no exception, the designs are detailed and the end result looks great no matter what medium you prefer to use to color them. I use regular coloring pencils myself but really I have seen them finished with gel pens and also watercolor pencils and the results were excellent!
