1. 31 illustrations printed one per page (the back of each page is blank) on bright white, heavy weight paper, perforated paper for easy removal of pages for framing or painting.
2. The paper is a joy to color on, Crayons, Colored pencils, Watercolor Pencils, Markers and Gel pens lay down smoothly and brightly.
3. Test you’re Gel Pens and Markers, if they leach through the paper, place a scrap sheet of paper under the page you are coloring on and leave it until the page is dry. OR remove the page from the book.
4. Author Marjorie Sarnat is co-founder and Director of Content Development of Jr Imagination, a publisher dedicated to growing the creative potential in children.
5. UPDATE: Marjorie now has a third and wonderful coloring book that has just been published and is available on Amazon it is "Fanciful Fashions Coloring Book" the artwork is amazing, a must have book (it is not a Creative Haven coloring book) her second book which is (Creative Haven Owls) has been released and is a top seller.
6. This is a wonderful book for experimenting with color, texture, and techniques.
7. Paisleys, Flowers, Music notes, Butterflies, Hearts, Geometric shapes, Steam punk and more patterns are used in these Illustrations.
8. I have added a picture that I colored with Fiskars Gel Pens, 2 illustrations that are included on the inside covers of the book to inspire you, and other images, I hope these will be helpful to you in deciding if this book is just right for you.
Perforated pages and its printed on one side which makes it great to display!
As for the book itself, paper is not a concern to me, since I copy the pages so I can color them more than once using different implements. Gel pens, color pencils and fine tip markers are the most common implements I use. The paper is thicker than your average copy paper, but I would never color in the book without putting a protective sheet in between pages. Marker will bleed through - Sharpie would bleed the most, Crayola the least. The gel pens don't bleed through, but the color shows through the back (not sure if this will make sense to you - the reader).
Most books you would not want the binding to break easily, but with coloring books, most people like the book to lay flat, whether for coloring or copying. This binding 'breaks' open very well. Allowing me to copy pages without removing them from the book. The pages are perforated!!! Coloring books loose at least 1/2 a star, in my opinion, for not having perforated pages. These are also one-sided pages, also important enough to loose 1/2 a star over.
Overall, the images in this book are fun, with crisp lines (even the fine lines) and minimal white space. Perhaps not for the youngest of coloring enthusiasts, unless they are a little more advanced in their coloring skills. (I did use these types of books to help hone my daughter's fine motor skills). I am looking forward to bringing out the brightest (and least used) of my pens and pencils for these images. Glitters, metallics and neons - oh my!!!
