This is one of the nicest coloring books of Psalms that I own. The verses are given the prominent position on the page and the designs are very pretty to color. I think about the verse and how it applies to my life as I color the design. It takes a restful activity and adds an element of worship for a more meaningful experience.
This is what I found while coloring in this book and testing my coloring medium on the paper:
47 Designs inspired by the book of Psalms
Designs printed on one side of the page with the verse cite printed on the design page.
Paper is heavyweight, white, slightly smooth and non-perforated
Sewn Binding – you can remove several pages in whole at a time by snipping the threads. The pages are also slightly glued in, so it may be a little more difficult than with other sewn binding books.
Some designs merge past the perforations into the binding area. Nothing essential to the design will be lost if you remove a page from the book.
Opens fairly flat for ease of coloring.
Alcohol-based markers bleed through the page. If you use this medium, I suggest using a blotter page to keep ink from seeping through. I use card stock but a couple of pages of paper should work as well.
Water-based markers, India ink pens and gel pens do not bleed through the page. Some do leave light, colorful shadows on the back of the page.
Colored pencils worked well with this paper. I tested both oil and wax based pencils and found that I was able to apply layers of the same color to get rich pigment. I could also layer multiple colors well and I could blend both oil and wax based pencils easily with a pencil style blending stick.
I did not really know what to expect. Would there be illustrations that actually drew the Psalms quoted or would there be illustrations that symbolized or interpreted the quoted Psalms?
The artist is an artist, not a theologian. The literal illustrations of each Psalm are attractive and they can be used in many ways depending on one's creativity..
