"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

The designs are extremely detailed and have many intricate and small areas to color. There is a lot of shading by way of delicate crosshatch (lines) rather than a heavy use of black. Because of the intricacy of most designs, I don't recommend this book for anyone with fine motor or vision issues.
While you can have access to .PDFs when you purchase this book, my review is based on the book as it is received from Amazon. That way you will know what the pages look like and how they accept color. I like that the publisher provides the digital version as well so you can choose the paper you wish to use and/or to color the pictures as many times as you choose.
This is what I found while coloring in this book and testing the paper with my coloring medium:
20 Horse designs with two copies each for a total of 40 coloring pages
Designs are printed on one side of the page
Paper is typical of CreateSpace: white, thin, slightly rough and non-perforated. The back of the page is printed black.
The designs do not merge into the binding. There is a heavy framing line at the outer edges of the design to give the project a more finished look, especially for framing.
Glue Binding (there is room to cut the pages out if you choose to do so.)
Though you cannot see the bleed-through easily due to the back of the page being printed in black, I recommend the use of a blotter page when working in this book. I use a page of card stock or several sheets of heavyweight paper under my working page. It keeps seeping ink and marring dents from ruining the pages below.
Alcohol-based markers bleed through the page quickly.
Water-based markers bleed through in spots.
Gel pens and India ink pens leave shadows on back of the page. India ink can bleed through if you apply heavily or multiple coats.
Coloring Pencils work well with this paper. I found that I could layers the same color for deeper pigment or multiple colors and I could blend easily using a blending stick. I tested both oil and wax based pencils. I also found that hard lead pencils leave dents through the paper.
This is a fantastic book, I would suggest it for those who are a bit older due to the amount of details.
I wonderful representation of our love of these animals and the powerful relationship we share.
If your feeling nostalgic or love the country life these will truly help you decorate your home with your own works of art that are outlined and ready for color.
Horses: The Adult Coloring Book
I received a pdf version of this book so that I could view it and share my opinion.
I downloaded the book, then printed out the images. Since I did not get the printed version, I do not know what the quality of the paper is. I am only able to share my experience with the artwork.
I am so pleased with the book! The horses are drawn with quality detail. The dimensions appear accurate for the different parts of the horses bodies. The detail is truly amazing. The designs within each picture are very small. I prefer that type of detail. If you prefer to add your own details however, you may not like it. It really is beautiful work so I personally think it is worth a try. The pictures provide variety that will please many different styles and preferences.
I would certainly recommend this book. The author has published a large amount of different books and I plan to try each of them and share my thoughts. I have found I like this particular artists style and feel confident that I will like all of them. You can search for "Jade Summer" to see all of the different books. I hope my review has been helpful to you.
