The designs are fairly open and easy to color. There is plenty of room left for blending or adding details if you wish to do so. I think it is a good book for adults who do not care for a lot of intricate details, those who are fans of Ms. Barker, and for children as well.
As it is printed on both sides of the page, using certain coloring medium will bled through to the design on the back of the page. As I like all of the designs in the book and it is a good value, I decided to purchase a second copy of the book so I can use whatever type of medium I want and still be able to color all of the pages.
This is what I experienced while coloring in this book and testing it with my coloring medium.
24 Flower Fairy Alphabet designs inspired by Cicely Mary Barker's artwork
Printed on both sides of the page
Paper is medium weight, slightly smooth, white and non-perforated
Designs stop well before the binding area.
All designs have a framing line around the outer edge to give a natural stopping point for the design and all of the elements within it. I really appreciate this feature in coloring books.
Alcohol-based markers bleed through this paper
Water-based markers, gel pens and India ink pens leave very slight shadows on the back of the page.
Colored pencils worked well with this paper. Both oil and wax-based pencils provided good pigment, layered well with the same or multiple colors and blended well using a blending stick.
