I have many, many books about zentangle - this is the BEST by far! I've never written a review before but this book requires a big shout out, especially to folks who already have some zentangle experience and are looking for the extra things that kick it up a notch, although beginners will appreciate it just as well. It covers all the extras including shading, value, style and coloring techniques. Topics that are stretched out over several books by other authors are all together in this wonderful book. If you only want one book about zentangle - this is it!

I have learned so much and I am only on day 5! Well written, informative, inspirational.. I am glad I bought it.

Attached pictures are from my first tangles ever done (the single picture is Tangle no 1, the others are done in the order displayed in the book)

If you are starting out.. you could not buy a better book!

The title grabbed my attention but the book did even more. I am an artist, have been for many years, but I have been struggling with an essential tremor in my dominant hand (the left) which has forced me to start training myself to use my right hand for things like eating soup or bringing a glass of water across the room without spilling it. My handwriting has suffered and I have almost stopped painting and drawing...until now.

When I looked through "One Zentangle a Day" I had an inspiration... Instead of doing one Zentangle a day, I have been using my left hand for one Zentangle the first day, and the next day I do the same lesson (using the assigned pattern but not the same composition) but I use my right hand. I had never been able to draw or paint with my right hand. Following the suggestions in the book, working slowly and concentrating on what I am doing, my DRAWING WITH EACH HAND HAS IMPROVED! I did not buy the "tiles" offered in the book, I am using two sketch books - one for my left handed drawings, and the second for drawings done with my right hand. I date and label each drawing as is suggested in the book. have been working with Zentangles for three weeks and the improvement is surprising and very encouraging.

The book is clearly written and well organized. The illustrations are self explanatory. Although it does require concentration and effort, the work is also relaxing. Sometimes a different approach will solve a problem. "One Zentangle a Day" has certainly helped me in my efforts to solve mine.

I bought this book because I wanted a more organized approach to learning basic tangles than I had taken, which was to find a tangle I liked in the books I have (both of Bartholomew's, Time to Tangle with Color, and one more) and learn it. I also wanted some help on learning to use tangles so they overlap, interweave, and do all the cool things I see in many examples. This book has been somewhat helpful, but could have been far better with a bit of judicious editing.

I have been following Krahula's daily regimen, and am indeed learning--and liking--tangles I had skipped over before. Her introduction has the best and most informative list of materials for tangling that I've seen. There are clear descriptions of the different kinds of pens, pencils, watercolors, papers, and so on. The daily schedule includes introductions to enhancements to tangles, shading, changes to tangles, working on dark and brightly colored paper, and more. She has thoughts about what makes an interesting Zentangle and tries to communicate them through examples of her own work, that of guest artists, and suggestions. I really wanted this part a lot.

Unfortunately, her command of written English is poor enough that in several places I really didn't understand what she was trying to explain, including her suggestions for interesting Zentangles. In others, I was merely annoyed: she uses "transcend" when she means "transition" and calls established rules about what is a Zentangle "historic' or "traditional", which is a bit pretentious for an art less than ten years old.

I got my first Zentangle book a year ago. What a fabulous thing to do. It takes 'doodling' to an all new level. It frees you to just let it go and who cares if you make a mistake..just turn it into something else. It also gives your hands something to do while watching TV, and it's really hard to snack too much while tangling (great on the diet!) This book lets you take the whole thing up to a whole new level, has very clear step-by-step examples of the different patterns and variations, and encourages you to add your own variations. It shows samples of finished pieces and many different ways to use the tangles in different mediums. I highly recommend this book.

I've only had this book a few days, and already I'm hooked! I plan on using what I'm learning from this book to design my own fabric with my long arm Tin Lizzie quilting machine. Who would have thought that drawing could be so fun! This is so easy, that I had my seat mate, (a total stranger), "tangling" with me on a plane yesterday!
