Zen Mandalas is different. It marries another favorite activity of mine, coloring mandalas, and offers some original and inspiring content that will make you want to grab a pen and some copics and get to work.
This is an excellent contribution to the zentangling field!
The mandala format has unlimited potential, no doubt about that. But it's best not to expect any step-by-step stuff from this attractive book.
I was surprised to find typos in this published book. I've gotten use to seeing them in kindle's inexpensive/free ebooks.. But I didn't expect to see some of the silly ones I found here: hanging comma's (cover), half of a word (p 16).
I confess to having stopped reading after noticing these, choosing instead to just look at the pictures and scan the text. We all make mistakes. But it's my opinion if you are asking for someone to pay money for something, it should have all the "i"s dotted, "t"s crossed... have someone take a second, third and fourth look at it before sending it off to the publisher. Yes, I know some get through, but this is a 50 page book that has more pictures than words.. seems like 15 minutes to have a few extra sets of eyes go through it wouldn't be a bad idea.
There are some lovely mandalas. But like another review said, they are all already finished works. I was hoping to find more about the process of creating the mandalas and how to combine it with tangles. I did find the snowflake idea to be ingenious!
There are lots of patterns and nice layout on how to create those patterns, for which I was happy to see. This alone meets the main requirement I was looking to get out of a couple of tangle books.
One more thing I felt disappointed to see... on p. 49 Good Luck - Hex Symbols, I was very surprised to see a Mercedes sign depicted as a Peace sign. They are most definitely two different symbols.. If this is wrong, what else might be wrong too. This may seem a petty complaint to some, but I find it very annoying.Read more ›
So also a tribute to : Rick & Maria the original Tangle founders, to Sandy Steen Bartholomew, and Joanne Fink for their wonderful Tangle Book Input !! Then also to TanglePatterns.com, a newsletter where you can learn online, a great measure of fullblown THANKS to Linda Farmer for all her wonderful work that she puts in getting it out there every day of the week !! WELL DONE LINDA !! THANK YOU dear TANGLE FOLK !!! :-))))) Kindest regards, L.B.
Some information is given as to number, color and symbolism in mandalas, nothing new or complete. There are some inspirational quotes throughout the book.
The snowflake idea is PERFECT for anyone who wants to create a variety of mandala designs quickly and easily without using a compass and protractor!
