All of the design stop well before the binding. The designs are printed on one side of thin white non-perforated paper that is typical for books published by CreateSpace. The binding is glued but there is plenty of room for you to cut a page out if you choose to do so.
All of my markers bleed through and my gel pens either bleed through or leave a distinct shadow on the back of the page. My coloring pencils work well with the paper. I will use a piece of chipboard or heavy paper behind the page I am working on so I don't ruin the following page with leaking ink.
While I could wish for thicker, perforated paper, it appears that this is the quality that comes from CreateSpace (which is an Amazon company.) What I really like about the CreateSpace is it is a way that independent artists can get their work self-published. That way, I get a huge choice of design styles albeit with not the best paper.
So you get 20 original illustrations and another 20 duplications. 40 pictures for a reasonable price, how wonderful! The rabbits and hares are lovely and you get a good variety of images, from single animals to mandalas and the rabbits/hares are in a nice range of poses.
One thing to note is that if you like lots of highly intricate designs then this book may not be the best choice. I personally am quite happy to colour in not particularly intricate illustrations, and there is a enough of a variety of simple to more intricate designs to keep me happily occupied.
It is relaxing, imaginative and very high on the cuteness factor!
One thing that does let the Doodle Artist range down a bit is the quality of the paper which is rather average. It is not terrible but I always prefer nicer paper as it makes the colouring experience more enjoyable and I end up a bit more satisfied with the results.
However each image is on a single page so there is no risk of ruining another image. I often switch between pencils and fineliner pens when colouring, with some gel pens added into the mix too, and all work nicely in this book.
Each page has a scissor line too which is handy if you want to cut out your works of art ;)
Overall I would recommend this to anyone looking for lovely drawings to colour.
I liked maybe 2/3 of the drawings, some of them were just a little weird, IMHO. Other people may enjoy the weirdness.
What I did like about the drawings is the detail isn't so tiny that you have trouble coloring anything.
You will want to put cardboard or newspaper behind the page if using markers to color.
I am paid by a survey company with Amazon gift cards, so I'm not out-of-pocket. This was an impulse purchase because I like rabbits.
Rabbits & Hares is suitable for ages 10 and up.
