Great Lay-Flat Cover, Nice Floral Patterns
By Dabbling Artist
from New York, NY
Comments about Art Therapy Series Adult Coloring Books:
This is a hard-covered coloring book with very stiff covers, but it is designed to lay flat when opened. The pages are not made to be torn out. Some images are two-page spreads some are not. The paper is very heavy-weight, and I have not colored on it yet, so I don't know if you experience marker bleed-through. There are images on the front and back of each page, so this is a concern. The images are largely flowers, with a few birds (and even fewer bees thrown in). There are occasional fairies as well (not a fan of those).Many of the florals have a wonderful art-nouveau feel that I love.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Order Mostely a Gift
from Easton, MD
Gifted to my mom, who loves to use the adult coloring books. She had used up all the stuff I gave her before and asked for more but different, so that is what I gave her. She said she really liked the pencils & sharpener, which was far better than her sharpener and, that the coloring book was different and interesting too.The Carol Marine book was for myself, recommended by an instructor. I've read it cover to cover and there were lots of great tips, no matter what your medium.

Color my world a rainbow of colors!
from N Geaorgia
It is so nice to have "age appropriate" haha...coloring books. It's a relaxing thing to do at the end of the day.Great quality with the hard front and back cover. Recommended for all !
Pros and Cons
Although many of the pictures are very nice, there are a lot of religious ones, which the person to whom I am gifting this book may not appreciate.However, the main disappointment was that the pictures are on both sides of the paper, instead of just on one side as are most of these coloring books. The pages are not so thick that markers will not bleed through and ruin the ones on the back side.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Larger than I expected
By Little Wing
from Takoma Park
I wanted some interesting books to use to color while winding down or relaxing. I bought the mandala and garden books. They are bound well and the paper quality is good. They are just so large (legal size paper or something near) that it takes days to color one page with colored pencils. These will last forever at this rate. I guess I'm learning how to deal w impatience. Lol.
Tons of images
I will have some fun adding color to some of the images others I will use the idea in something I create adding a little twist of course.

Lovely Art Book
By Susie in the Sky, With Crayons
from Bremerton, WA
This is my first art therapy book, so I have none to compare with. A variety of pictures to color. The drawings are of stained glass, and their descriptive names and pictures are included in the back of the book. I found this very interesting.The pages seem nice and thick, although I would have enjoyed having perforated pages for tearing them out, which I want to do. Yet, there are easy ways around that, and I would certainly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys stained glass.

this is great adult coloring book was so excited to receive
from asheville, n.c.
Very cool designs most are true stained glass pictures with examples of each in back of book. I enjoy very much! Oh in hard cover book Great for safe keeping
Awesome way to relax and be calm.
I use the product to gather my thoughts and lessen the stress from any given day. The designs are terrific and offer many ways to center and use one's own cretivitiy. To a lesser degree, a few less swirls, or objects to color would be a nice visual break at times.
