About the Author
Jane Monk lives in Tasmania, Australia. She is a self-taught artist who has been drawing since she was a young girl, inspired by the beauty in all things in the natural and man-made worlds. Patterns and repetition, and the sometimes quirky and different, are what inspire her work.
An award-winning machine quilter, Jane quilts professionally for others through her business, Jane Monk Studio. In 2010 Jane became a certified Zentangle teacher and combines her love of Zentangle and quilting by bringing these two complementary mediums together. She has designed quilt patterns for publication in quilting magazines and produced a DVD showcasing the basics of Zentangle and quilting. She has taught numerous classes in Zentangle, quilting, free-motion stitching, making journal covers, and doll making. More information on Jane can be found at her website: www.janemonkstudio.com.

As if the designs alone were not enough, the artist has included page and page of information teaching various color theory and techniques. I've seen other books with some information in them but this is the most detailed one that I have seen as yet. I'm impressed and will certainly be putting some of Ms. Monk's suggestions into practice. I'm also impressed enough that I will be purchasing her first book in the near future, too.
The book is very well made and is slightly smaller than a standard coloring book. The pages are printed on one side of heavyweight bright white perforated paper. Some of the designs extend past the perforations but nothing of note will be missing if you remove the page from the book. The binding is sewn in rather than glued.
My markers were a mixed bag when it came to coloring in this book. The only ones that consistently did not leak through were my Staedler triplus fineliners. My Tombows dual end brush did not leak when I used the brush end but did with the marker end. All other markers – both water and alcohol-based leaked through. My gel pens did not leak through but needed extra drying time. My various coloring pencils all worked well. Whatever coloring tools you decide to use, you can either put a heavyweight page below the page you are working on or you can remove the page easily from the book to keep ink from leaking through to the next design.
The book itself is large and very thick. There is no skimping on designs in this book. It is just jam-packed with page after page of perfection. The pages are, in my opinion, perfect, not too thick and not too thin. Each page has just the 1 design on it, leaving the back free, and that makes it perfect for those colorists who use media that will bleed or soak through. As always, protect your pages by always using a buffer, like several sheets of paper, card stock, or even a clip board.
This book is exactly what it says, a tangle of gardens and garden dwellers.
