EDIT: This has turned out to be one of my all-time favorite coloring books. I've had it for over a year now, and I can say this is the first coloring book that I've completely finished. I hope more in this series are published! I'd love to see a dog book or a second volume of Icons.
The pages are thick enough to withstand alcohol markers, but there is some bleedthrough so put a sheet between pages just in case. There are so many ways to color the images, and I love trying out different methods like crosshatch, dots, and monochrome.
This book contains 21 pictures to color, which includes one large 19"x14" poster, each of which is an "icon" such as Marilyn Monroe, Abraham Lincoln, Elvis Presley, etc. For most of the pictures, you won't be able to tell who it is when you first start coloring. You will be well into the coloring process before you can guess who it is.
Each picture takes quite a long time to color, as there are a lot of spaces to fill in. But this book is different from most adult coloring books, and different from most color-by-number coloring books, too. This is a unique experience and I feel like I am creating a masterpiece each time I color one of these gorgeous pictures. I recommend this highly and plan to buy the other versions, including Animals, Masterpieces and Cats.
The paper these pictures are printed on is heavier and is good quality. The book is glue-bound and the pages are perforated on the side so you can take them out easily if you would like to either work on them outside of the book or frame them once you complete them.
I got the Icons, the Masterpieces, and the Animals ones. This one is BY FAR the best.
There's an iPad app where you can try some out and see if you're into it. Or even to test out some color ideas.
Quick question - what happened to Lennon? He's on the app but not in the book, n that makes me sadface.
