Reviews

Very nice. Good quality paper. Good variety of tapestries. Very fun to color. This is my first foray into adult coloring; I don't do any kind of visual art. I purchased this book along with 24 Prismacolor pencils. Brewed some tea, put on some classical music (Haydn) and am having a great time. Very relaxing. Have finished two very detailed pages and they look great. I'm eager to start on the next image. I recommend this book.
