"This is Squidoodle's first colouring book, and includes 16 original illustrations for you to colour. There's nothing monotonous or repetitive about Steve's art, every page is so interesting and a real treat for the eye. Each design is different in theme and style, from nautical to nature, hibiscus to hot air balloons. I would've loved to see more industrial/machinery/key & lock related drawings (visit the Squidoodle Facebook page to see more of his amazing art) but that's my personal preference. Maybe Steve will do an all-steampunk book one day...? - Colour With Claire, 11th September 2015.

This colouring book is in a doodle theme design. I love adult colouring books is perfect if you enjoy colouring in detailed and small spaces. I prefer colouring in complicated pictures that take ages to complete. This is nice because you can start and leave it or in most cases I get glued to it and don't want to stop until I have finished. It allows you to be creative even if you are not naturally artistic, it will bring out your creative side.
Some exciting designs in this book are hot air balloons, an owl, parrots, a camper van, gears, dragon, under the sea treasure and much more. It is nice to have a selection of totally unconnected pictures so that you can decide which takes your fancy on that particular day. They are intricate and lots of small detail if that is what you like. They are pictures that are not to be rushed and therapeutic relaxing and calming fun.
There are many different techniques and ideas for how to colour in but in my opinion you should just go with the flow and see where you land up. You can never make a mistake.
I prefer using copic markers because the results are very bright intense shades but then there are many different ways to colour in and so much choice, coloured pencils are always great too. A word of caution if you are thinking of using alcohol markers, they will bleed through to the other side of the page so you would need to put a piece of cardboard there to stop it leaking on to the next page.
The pages are not perforated so you would need to carefully tear the page out.
It is a wonderful therapeutic book and it is suitable for all skill levels and children could enjoy this too. For me the big plus is the amount of detail in each one.
I have added photographs for your convenience.
I still give this 5 stars, because it's only his 2nd book, and he's a nice guy, I've talked with him on his Facebook page. I would recommend anyone getting this book.
I chose a dragon for my first project. I colored it in a variety of alcohol-based markers. I find that alcohol-based work better for me with this paper and designs, so that is how I will probably continue with the book.
This is an overview of what I found in this coloring book:
16 Hand-drawn designs
Printed on one side of CreateSpace white, thin, slightly rough, non-perforated paper
Designs do not merge into the binding area and you will not lose portions of the designs if you cut pages out of the book
Alcohol and water-based markers bleed through this paper
Gel pens and India ink pens leave shadows of color on the back of the page.
Coloring pencils work well with this paper. Soft lead goes on well though I find that to get heavier pigment, I have to layer color on in thin coats. Hard lead pencils dent the back of the page.
I recommend a blotter page of card stock or heavy weight paper be used beneath your working page to keep ink and dents from marring the pages below.
I received a free sample of this coloring book for test and review purposes.
