What I have found is that there is a real difference between the two books. To begin with, the new book is one inch shorter than the original. That means that some of the designs are cropped slightly different in this version, though I did find that all 30 of the designs are in both books (though the new book also includes 12 smaller versions of some of the designs as well.)
The paper in the new book is a little more of an ever so slightly antique white compared to the bright white of the original (I will try to show the differences between the two books in a photo below. Note that the stand-alone photos of the book look perfectly white when seen by themselves.) It is much thicker, has a nicer texture, works better with a variety of coloring medium and, of course, the pages are all perforated.
The premium version contains 30 larger designs and 12 smaller ones. The small ones are printed two to a page and you have to cut them on the provided cutting line to separate them from each other. The larger design will fit an 8 x 10 inch frame and the smaller design will fit a 5 x 7 inch frame. The 12 smaller designs are not unique and new designs but rather smaller versions of 12 of the larger designs.
The designs are all Scripture-based with verse citations; however, I cannot provide the specific translation information as it is not included in the book. As with my other books by this publisher, the Bible verse is what is the stand-out from the page thought the hand-drawn illustrations are lovely and are fun and easy to color as well. The images in the coloring book are licensed from Shutterstock.
For my first two projects in this version of the coloring book, I used alcohol-based markers (Sharpies and Bic Mark-its in ultra fine.) While the ink did leak through, I had removed each page from the book and color it while it was on my clipboard.
I am really thankful for companies such as Paige Tate and Pen and Paint for providing beautiful and easy to color designs which put Scripture first and foremost. I always reach for one of my Christian coloring books when I am feeling troubled and want to color. I find that meditating on the verse while coloring helps bring clarity to the issues that I am dealing with. The verse excerpts always lead me back to that portion of the Bible and I read through and think about it throughout the rest of the day.
This is the overview of what I found in this coloring book:
30 Large Format and 12 Small Format Scripture Based Designs in for a total of 42 coloring opportunities
Printed on one side of perforated, antique white, slightly rough medium weight paper
Designs do not merge into the binding area
Book can open to fairly flat position though I removed my pages from the book for coloring
Alcohol-based markers bleed through the paper
Water-based markers left shadows of color on the back of the page
Gel pens and India ink pens left indistinct shadows on the back of the page
Coloring pencils work well with the paper with the soft lead going on well both with a light hand and a firm hand. I was able to blend and layer well with a wide variety of brands of coloring pencils. My hard lead pencils provided good color and did not dent the back of the page.
I have purchased several Paige Tate coloring books, not only for myself, but to give as gifts- and I have never been disappointed.
When this coloring book arrived- the cover alone was so pretty, I didn't want to open it! LOL The pictures are clean and simple, the pages (printed on one side) tear out easily.
Once again, I'm VERY happy with my Paige Tate coloring book. I'll be buying more to give as gifts!
(Full disclosure: I was gifted this book specifically to review, which did not influence this review. I just really like this coloring book!)
