"It is very easy to fall into prayer while working on these images." --From the foreword by Elizabeth Scalia, US editor-in-chief of Aleteia and author of Strange Gods
"Daniel Mitsui's beautiful renderings are sure to inspire the mystic artist hidden inside all who use this inspiring coloring book." --Mickey McGrath, O.S.F.S., Author of Good St. John XXIII
"Influenced by the religious art of medieval Europe, when Gothic art was created according to Catholic principles, Daniel Mitsui honors God and the Blessed Virgin Mary with these traditional images. Designed in his signature style, these detailed coloring pages will encourage a deeper meditation on the holy Rosary." --Margaret Rose Realy, Author of A Catholic Gardener's Spiritual Almanac
"Adult coloring books can be a powerful portal into creative meditation. These images are beautiful as well as inspiring, inviting you to ponder their themes through both inner reflection and active illumination." --Christine Valters Paintner, Author of Illuminating the Way
"Daniel Mitsui's images offer something new while remaining rooted in timeless ideals." --Zoe Romanowsky, Catholic writer, blogger, and lifestyle editor at Aleteia

About the Author
Artist Daniel Mitsui specializes in ink drawing. His meticulously detailed creations--created entirely by hand on paper or vellum--are held in collections worldwide. Since his baptism into the Catholic Church in 2004, he has focused most of his art on religious subjects.
Mitsui is a 2004 graduate of Dartmouth College (cum laude and senior fellow), where he studied drawing, oil painting, etching, lithography, wood carving, bookbinding, and film animation.
The Vatican commissioned Mitsui to illustrate a new edition of the Roman Pontifical in 2011. In 2012, he established Millefleur Press, an imprint for publishing fine books and broadsides of his artwork and typography. He is a prolific designer of custom bookplates.
Born in Georgia and raised in Illinois, Mitsui lives in Chicago with his wife, Michelle, and their three children.

I had thrown good money after junk when I bought a Drawn to Faith Psalms for Catholics coloring book--if you check out my review over there, you'll see I irked someone enough to get a negative click. My review was honest about a coloring book that was thrown together with only seconds of thought regarding the images and no consideration at all regarding how focused attention to the coloring task becomes meditative and prayerful. I was very leery about buying another adult coloring book, having seen the poor quality of the D2F production. I was more than relieved when this book came in the mail. I was overjoyed. THIS is what I had hoped for from the beginning for adult coloring books.
This coloring book has been carefully crafted around a specific Catholic devotion. I bought it as a gift. The person who receives this book will have hours of deep, meditative time with the mysteries.
It occurs to me that, if one were to use crayons strategically, these drawings could be ironed (with a piece of baking parchment or piece of printer paper over the coloring) and turned into something resembling stained glass.
Not quite ready to color the pages yet....the drawings do not seem to
be appropriate for coloring. I say this because it is the first time I am
not inspired to start and what colors to use. I am very good at coloring
and I want this book to become a family treasure. However, this is a
difficult "style" and I want to make it come alive with color. It would be nice
to follow the artists vision if I can.
My children were able to enjoy this book as did I.
I like to color details but this was simply too much and it didn't add to the images anyway.
