At the beginning, you'll find a short introduction about meditation and the designs included in this book. I think it's a nice touch and as a plus side - it has flower designs on the side, so if you're not into reading it you can simply color those designs and maybe you're eyes will wander to the text part too.
Just after the introduction there's this lovely, intricate flower design. It's amazing! Flowers and leaves swirl around creating patterns that would perfectly fit to embellish some elven creation in Lord of The Rings movies.
There are over ninety pages filled with these lovely pictures that simply cry for you to color them. So why did I cut half of the star from the rating? I've checked the size of the book and it's 8,5 x 8,5 inches (I had to recalculate these to centimeters to know how big it actually is...) and as much as this size is perfect for most of the designs there are some detailed ones that will be hard to color here. I don't think it will be much of a problem for anyone like me :D but I feel like I should write about it anyway. The book I have now on my desk has about 10 x 10 inches and even with that one I have some troubles coloring the tiny images.
All in all, I think this book is worth your time and money. It looks lovely and it will let your mind relax for hours.
I received this copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
My honesty here lies in the fact that I only have a digital copy. I'm unable to tell if there are printed drawings for coloring on both sides or not. To guess, I'd say it very well might be printed on both sides, thus having to choose one picture over the other,HOWEVER, I can't be sure! With Vreative Haven, I can tell it's printed one side only because when you turn the digital page, it's blank, then the next picture comes up. This company may not present it this way though, figuring that if you have digital, you'll copy it by a printer, then they need not have next page blank. This is ONLY reason I gave it 4 stars, because I'm just not sure how physical book is set up.
The pictures are beautiful nature, flowers, prints etc. some are easier than others allowing all people, whether just starting out, or advance, to have pictures to choose from. The pictures I've seen are typical of these adult coloring books, some easy, some harder, but all will turn out very nice once they're filled in with colors chosen by owner of the book.
I'd definitely consider buying this book esp. If I knew for sure, there is only 1 picture printed on each side. The artist that did the drawings made a nice mixture to choose from & they appear high grade quality drawings for adult coloring by either gel pens, colored pencils, or markets ( beware of bleed through though with any pen type used to color) I'd actually give this 4.5 stars
Today I am reviewing a copy of a coloring book and it is an awesome coloring book. The beginning of the book goes into how meditation is so popular and how it works so well, and lately it seems so many people have picked up on coloring as a away to relax and unwind, a different type of meditation, as it were!
One thing is for sure, the pictures are intricate and concentration is needed to be able to figure out the colors you want to use and that right there is the perfect way to relax and forget about all the stress in our lives and spend time to do something pleasurable!
There are all types of illustrations, mandalas, flowers, symbols from nature, elephants, peacocks, lotus blossoms so it is fun to go through and see something you want to devote some time on, concentrate on the colors you would like to use, and then spend however long you want either daily, once a week, the choice is yours! I know when I start coloring I tend to get involved and spend a lot of time and feel so much better when I am through.
Do yourself a favor and check out Meditations Through Coloring, by River Grove Press, I love their coloring book and I know you will too.
I gave this publication 5 stars as it is suitable for an adult like myself that wants a little more than the typical coloring book that is out there! Also it is obvious time was spent to make this book a pleasurable experience for all that look at it.
I noticed "zentangle" patterns in some of the designs, which is very popular right now. I especially wanted to color the elephant design because of this. I loved the hand designs with the henna on them.
This coloring book is a great gifting coloring book too. Not only would I love to give it to fellow artists, family, and friends, but I would also love to receive it as a gift.
I would recommend this book to people who enjoy drawing, coloring, and for therapists to use in their practice.
I don't think children would get much out of it since it is more intricate, and intended for adults, but I'm sure many artistic teenagers would love to color these in their free time to help with everyday stress. Equally, adults will love this book to use to meditate and use to relax and unwind from a hard day.
