I purchased the "Art Nouveau Animal Designs" and "Nature Mandalas" coloring books as a gift this Christmas, and I looked through both of them before I wrapped them up to ensure they were intact and good quality. These were both beautiful books, and I love the designs in them; I will be purchasing at least one of each for myself in the future and I will likely give them as gifts again as well. I was glad I was able to look at preview images to be able to select the best books for the recipient, but they are even more gorgeous in person.
