The artist, Jason Hamilton, has provided another really outstanding cat coloring book. He has framed all of his designs which is something that I really appreciate. I like having the defined edge to a page so I am not left with half done elements and trying to figure out how to stop without a finishing point. It also saves a bunch on time and materials not to have to color the entire page. I will certainly look for more of Mr. Hamilton's books in the future.
What is outstanding and unique about this coloring book (and Mr. Hamilton's other coloring book “Cats and Quilts”) is that you are given full size coloring pages of each design as well as a 4 x 6 inch version. All of the designs are printed on one side of the paper (with the back left blank) though the smaller version are printed two to a page (with the back left blank.) All of the designs have blank space on all sides, so coloring into corners is not an issue with this book.
The designs are printed on white non-perforated paper. The paper is medium weight and all markers and gel pens bleed through. Not a problem – I am now using a piece of chipboard under my work to keep ink from leaking through to ruin the design below. You can use heavyweight paper or card stock but be sure to check to see how many layers you need to keep it from leaking through. The binding of this book is glued rather than sewn or stapled. There is plenty of room to cut the page out if you wish.
In summary, a really great Christmas coloring book for the cat enthusiast. This coloring book could have been improved by using perforated paper to make it easier to remove pages. Given that plenty of room was provided for making cuts, this was not a large problem. The paper quality could have been improved but by printing on one side, it is easy to slip a heavier weight paper behind the page being worked on to keep the ink from going any further.
Another nice feature that I haven't seen in any other coloring books (just his other book), is that each page is duplicated in 4x6" size in the back of the book. This allowed me to do the same page in two different types of cats. And the smaller one will be used to send as a Christmas card to my mother-in-law!
This is the typical bright white paper in all the books published through Amazon's Createspace printers. I like to use watercolor media, so I scan and print a page onto 110lb card stock for some of them. I also add glitter to the ornaments with Stardust gelly clear glitter pens.
There are lots of fun pictures in this book to color!
OK, I couldn't wait 'til Christmas! I'll share my first page colored with you.
I used mostly Raffine Color Marco oil based color pencils, a little red crayloa marker for hat and flowers. Outlined the decorations on fireplace with Pilot G-2 07 gel pen , and Prismacolor premier color pencils for the fire.
I also really like the Tombow mono zero eraser pen for small detail eraser and the Derwent battery operated eraser.
I've seen many Christmas-themes books in the stores, but none so purrfect as this one for someone who loves sitting beside a fire with their kitty on their lap! Holiday scenes with playful or snuggly kitties - nothing better!
The designs are fun and well drawn - plenty of room for creative coloring as well as enjoying the scenes of the pictures themselves!
This is a coloring book by a talented artist - have also gotten his Cats and Quilts which I love almost even more - and I cannot wait for his future books! FINALLY - adult coloring that isn't just mind-numbing patterns! Love it!
I really like the artist's style. The cats are nicely drawn and don't look "cartoonish" like some cats do. There is room to color the cats any color(s) you like.
I used Sharpies (use a piece of paper behind your page to prevent bleed through), gel pens, and Prismacolor pencils, and they all work nicely on the paper. My only quibble is that I wish the paper was a bit thicker. It was a little thinner than I expected.
If you like cats and/or Christmas, get this book! You can't go wrong.
