More About the Author

Marty is from a family of artists going back several generations. Raised in Santa Barbara, she pursued her creative interests from an early age, settling on the batik technique in the early 60's. From simple pieces the work grew into very detailed paintings earning her a reputation is area galleries as well as in the illustration field. In 1980 she switched to watercolor and pursued opportunities with art publishing firms and has since enjoyed seeing her designs used as book illustration, posters, puzzles, greeting cards, plate designs and calendars. Her primary focus in the last 15 years has been as an illustrator for Dover Publications where she has had 230 books published that include a series of coloring books of many of the famous painters and art movements as well as a variety of design and activity books for artists and children, Marty lives in Anna Maria Florida, where she finds continual inspiration for her current series of photo art prints. Her passion for photography and mastery of computer art programs have enabled her to marry the two in her recent print series depicting the natural beauty of southern Florida

It's absolutely amazing how every time you work on one of these images they come out different, perhaps reflecting your mood.

The Paisley Designs Coloring Book is so much creative fun, adults will adore it. Dover puts out some of the best publications like this. If you're stuck in the house on a rainy day, staying home sick from work, or just looking for some cool coloring fun -- I highly recommend this book!

I am also a grown up that likes to color. The Dover coloring books are really great and very well priced for a quality product. I happen to love the paisley designs - hard to get bored with these shapes. Dover coloring books rule!

This book would be great if there was not another picture to color on the back. Each picture should have it owns page with a blank bank. My kids are unable to use markers because it leaks through. Plus you can only hang one side up on the wall so it is useless to have a picture on back.

I purchased this coloring book with the primary intention to develop my own designs for purses I am developing for my business - those with a 1960s-1970s flair. Yes, some are wild, as to be expected, others have a quality that can definitely be modified to fit my needs. Yet, I am also drawn to color them in and by first scanning the images (or I suppose get several more books), I can test color combinations to see what works. It is definitely fun, productive (for my business), and a stress reducer. Marty Noble's Coloring Book lines through Dover are of a higher quality in design and content (few, if any duplicates - interesting patterns - quality paper), but are printed on both sides of the paper. Yet when scanning, the paper is of high quality so the reverse image doesn't come through.

Therefore - great book for the creative designs (artists) and stress reducer (for the coloring book crowd...and it is growing...we are all becoming kids again!).

This is a great coloring book for adults who want to experiment with colors. I enjoyed being able to use lots of color combinations with many small and large spaces. This was intricate enough to feel a little challenged. I can't draw, so it was fun to color and to exercise my creativity with color.

The designs in this book are all decepitively difficult and super cool , but they are also super tight .
I highly recommend using fine line or brush tip markers / pens as a medium .
If you decide to go with colored pencils keep your sharpener handy !

Some of the designs would be even suitable to cut out and make into stencils if you were wanting to do a larger project .
The size of the pages are adequate for copying if you need room to plan for mistakes !

Love the designs in this book. Unfortunately, you cannot use marker because it bleeds through to the other side of the page. The designs themselves are wonderful.
