In each chapter, the focus is on the fairies hairstyles. Most of the hairdos are of flowers entwined amidst the hair or even replacing them altogether. There are also sea creatures, butterflies, dragonflies, leaves and dreams. It is a delightful book to spend time with and showcases the wonderful talent of the artist, Jo So-Jin.
The designs in this coloring book are printed on both sides of white, non-perforated paper. The designs are limited to one page and some of them merge into the binding. The binding is glued rather than sewn, so you will have to cut the pages out if you wish to remove them. If you do so, you will lose some portion of the designs that merge into the binding. I was able to break the spine slightly and get the book to lay flat.
I test my coloring books with various coloring medium (list below) and here are the results of those tests:
All alcohol-based markers bleed through the paper quickly. All water-based markers and India Ink artist pens leave a colorful shadow on the back of the page. Gel pens work well with this paper, don't bleed through, and do not require additional drying time. Coloring pencils work exceptionally well with this book. The soft lead pencils go on thick and cream and blend easily. The hard lead pencils go on with good color and do not make dents in the back of the book.
If you choose to use markers with this book, you will mar the design on the backside of the page you are working on. I would suggest that you use a blotter page of thicker paper below your working page to keep ink from seeping further into the book.
These are the coloring medium that I use for testing. If there is something else you feel I should be testing, please let me know and I will see if I can add it to my growing pile:
Markers: 1) alcohol-based – Copic Sketch, Prismacolor double ended markers (brush and fine point), Sharpies (fine and ultra-fine) Bic Mark-its (fine and ultra-fine) and 2) water-based – Tombows dual end markers (brush and fine point), Stabilo 88, and Staedler triplus fineliners
India Ink: Faber-Castell PITT artist pens (brush tip)
Gel Pens: Sakura, Fiskars, Uni-ball Signo in the following sizes - 0.28/0.38/0.5/1.0 and Tekwriter
Coloring Pencils: Prismacolor Premier Soft Core, Derwent Colorsoft, Prismacolor Verithins, Caran D'Ache Pablo Colored Pencils and Faber-Castell Polychromos
