A quick check showed that my pencils, gel pens, and all markers worked well without any ink leaching through. If I decide to use watercolors, I would probably still place a sheet of freezer paper or heavy stock paper between the pages or remove the page from the book just in case something leaks through.
The designs are filled with intricate details and are a mix of ones that are centered with lots of blank space around them and others that bring the design edge-to-edge. There won't be a problem with getting into the last little bits as these designs are easily pulled out from the booklet form. The publisher put these in a format that makes it easy to color, pull apart, and then frame should you wish to do so.
I am so thrilled that the artist and publisher have heard and listened to the requests of those of us who love her work. I hope to see further editions of artist's sets - both for the "Secret Garden" and for the "Enchanted Forest" and any future coloring books Ms. Basford designs.
I further hope that other artists and publishers take note of how appreciated this style of book is for colorists. We spend a lot of time and money with our hobby and want good materials. Designs can be very pretty but if they are difficult to work with, a lot of us will simply pass.
As Ms. Basford's original book set the high standard for adult coloring books to follow, this artist's edition sets another standard for high quality, coloring sets suitable for framing.
The paper is a heavy cardstock that is true. But it’s not artist grade paper
Copics bleed, Tombows tear up the paper when blending, and they also smear if you’re clumsy like I was
It has no tooth to the paper so it’ll be interesting with colored pencils and I have no idea how watercolor will work
The images are nice and big and I like it, but it’s a bit disappointing
They came on time and the quality of the books I got are great. Couldn't be happier with my purchase !!!
