Rather than discuss how this is like or different from the books and/or movie series except to note that the iconic images seem to be taken primarily from the movie, I will discuss only how I feel about it as an adult coloring book.
The book is illustrated by a variety of artists and it shows. Some of the designs are simply drawn and some are complex, a few with small intricate details that may be difficult to color. I am really glad that they did not over draw the faces with too much detail as I will be able to add my own blending (this was a problem with the recent Sherlock coloring book.) Some of the designs are quite heavy on black spaces – something I would have preferred to put in myself. Otherwise, the designs are well done artistically. They have included glossy pages at the end of the book – perhaps so we can know what colors are to be used or simply as a fun addition to the book.
The book is printed on both sides of off-white heavyweight and non-perforated paper. A good number of the designs are printed across two pages and merge into the bind (which is glued rather than sewn.) I did a count and this is what I came up with: 40 one page designs, 4 of which are “wallpaper” repeating patterns; 19 designs spread across two pages – 5 of which are wallpaper style designs. Unfortunately, a good many of the iconic scenes were in the ones that were spread across two sheets. I was able to bend the binding enough to get the book to lay flat and found that the pages lines up very well and I didn't lose any of the picture into the binding itself.Read more ›
Anyway. Back to the coloring book! I was really excited that I would be able to re-visit the wizarding world via coloring. Especially since the blurb on the back cover promised:
“…explorations of Hogwarts Castle, the Forbidden Forest, and much more…[and] pages of magical creatures and iconic scenes from the films…as well as some of the marvelous props used in the movies…”
However, once the coloring book arrived in my hands my excitement turned quickly to disappointment.Read more ›

This is the first Harry Potter Poster coloring book. There have now been three regular coloring books in this line and the poster book is based on the first two books “Harry Potter Coloring Book” and “Harry Potter Magical Creatures Coloring Book”. I feel that each of the books could have merited their own poster books, such as the ones that have been done for “Secret Garden” and “Enchanted Forest.”
A few of my favorite designs from both books are included; however, I feel that they included a few too many “wallpaper” repeating designs rather than putting in some of the more iconic scenes that were spread across two pages in the original books. There are so many designs I would have preferred but that is only my taste in the artwork. While I was a little disappointed, I won't detract a star in my rating as the artwork that was included was done extremely well.
I really appreciate this format for coloring books. The paper is much more heavy weight though I call it a medium weight card stock. It could certainly stand up well to being framed if you so choose after you color it. The size is also great for framing at 14 x 11 inches.
I tested the poster book with a wide variety of coloring medium and will provide my test results in the overview below. I'll also include a list of the types of medium I tested in the comments section following this review.Read more ›
