Upon their arrival I was struck by the differences in these to books. The first has very good artwork and better paper quality. (Thicker pages). Below is break down of what I found.
~ Thin Double- sided paper : Double sided the same as the first but, the pages are very thin poor quality paper. Even when using good quality color pencils I experienced the points going through the paper.
~ Poor Picture Quality: The printing of these mandalas are rather poor. They make the book look like a *bootleg* of Alberta Hutchinson's artwork. As the designs aren't presented in the clear crisp lines of book one. They are fuzzy and blurred lines.
If anyone recalls mimeograph machines and how those copies could look after awhile. You would be familiar with what I mean by a *poorly done hand-out copy* That we often received from school in the 70's and 80's . This is what these pages remind me of and why unlicensed publication quality is the comparison that comes to mind.
Overall Opinion: After thinking about it. I must say that this book I don't like it. Do to the quality issues. Only three designs in back of the book remind me of book one and wish they were better done. This book is going into my tester pile. Where I test new media materials I purchase because it doesn't meet my expectations for Dover. Had this book been my introduction to mandalas I wouldn't have formed a love for them. Therefore I couldn't recommend this book to anyone.
▪The images are printed on both sides of the pages. Thus, unless you are strictly a pencil colorist, this book is only good as a master copy book (for personal use, of course, no copyright violation there). And even then, I would put a blank sheet between the finished pages to avoid color transfer onto the facing image.
▪The paper is not of a particularly high quality. Again, if you plan to use markers or even gel pens, I would copy the image first, to avoid bleed through to the next image.
Overall, the designs are pretty, but the book's features limit you to particular media, unless you copy the images. It's all in personal preference.
"Really? I'm a grown-up, mom."
"I know, but it's fun."
I started to work on one, and he finally asked to see the book. He chose one and started to work on it.
Five hours later, he was on his third mandala. :)
I bought him this book and the second one and a bunch of pens for Christmas, and he and his girlfriend actually sat around the living room after dinner working on their designs.
I looked at a lot of other Mandala coloring books, but this one is the perfect blend between intricate and simple. The designs are easy to color with felt-tip markers. The mandalas have such pleasing patterns, and no two are alike. Highly recommend!
