About the Author
DARIA SONG is an author and artist with a master’s degree in fiber arts from the Ewha Womans University Graduate School of Fine Arts. Winner of the Kyung Hyang Arts Contest, Song has exhibited at numerous galleries and museums in Korea, Singapore, Turkey, and Hong Kong. She is a lecturer at the Kaywon School of Arts and her illustrations can be found in Amore Pacific and SK Planet. She spent five years of her childhood in San Francisco before returning to Korea, and the sense of wonder and mystery that comes from living in a far-off place inspired her internationally best-selling adult coloring book, The Time Garden.

Daria Song, the artist/writer of this book, has received advanced degrees in fine arts in her native South Korea. Early in her life, she also spent time in San Francisco and that translates into the art in this book. Both of her books are a real delight to me. Her illustrations create a truly magical land for me to escape into as color each page.
The book is printed on both sides of the good quality paper which seems to be the normal for the “story book” style of coloring book. I generally use my soft color pencils with these to be sure that I don't have any ink bleed through the book onto the backside of the page. As I go along, if I want to use a gel pen or other medium, I find a title page to test the specific pen. If it is good, then I go ahead and use it.
The designs in this book include a number of intricate details and I am sure I will need to keep my magnifying lamp nearby for those bits and pieces.
I am thoroughly enjoying both of Ms. Song's color books. I am hoping that Ms. Song will return again with more beautifully illustrated color books – perhaps more about the little girl and the red-haired fairy or perhaps someone new.
When I actually got into the coloring book, I realized that it wasn't just a beautifully designed coloring book, but a short little children's book as well. I didn't realize that it was the second in the series, or I probably would have gotten the other one first, but this is so wonderful, that I'm glad that I have it.
I'm contemplating coloring the book in great painstaking detail and then giving a copy to each of my grand children for a present. But they would have to be much older for me to want to do that, since I wouldn't want them to want to color in it, or to rip the pages.
I think a pre-teen girl would love this book as a present since it's so beautiful, and detailed.
There are pictures on both sides of the pages, but the paper is heavy and I've never had a problem with bleed-through. There are fine lines which I am much more comfortable doing with fineliner pens, but I think a really sharp colored pencil could do pretty much all of them. There are also larger shapes which invite colored pencils, or anything else which permits a lot of shading and blending. Since the pages are printed on both sides, if you use colored pencils or anything else that can smudge, you will want a fixative to stop them smudging the opposite page.
I just love this book. I've done a lot of mandalas and abstract coloring, and liked them, and I've done some of the Enchanted Garden, which was fine, and some of Hanna Karlzon's books, which I think are truly excellent, but doing a bit of work on The Time Chamber every night before bed feels like each time I'm telling myself a tiny snippet of the best bedtime story ever.
