  1. This is an amazing, unique coloring and doodling book. The book is beautiful, the images artistic, flowing and a bit mysterious. With 61 captivating, very detailed illustrations to color with pens or colored pencils and another 32 simply detailed illustrations waiting for you to complete with your own doodling designs.

    1. 124 pages to color on 62 pages with illustrations printed front and back of each page. Printed on heavy weight paper, bright white paper that has most of the backgrounds colored.

    2. 61 amazing, artistic Illustrations to color, with the backgrounds already colored.

    3. 32 Illustrations simply detailed for you to complete with your own doodling.

    4. Gel pens and colored pencils work well with this book, I tested Fiskars Gel Pens and Irma Gel Pens and neither leaked through the pages.

    5. I tested markers and Bic Mark-it, Sharpie, and Pentel, leaked through the page enough to ruin the picture on the backside of the page I tested. Staedtler Fine liners leaker through the least with only a couple dots of black actually going through the page so I am going to color a picture with these. The Staedtler Fibre tips some colors did leak through especially the very dark colors blue, green, black and other colors did not leak through at all.

    6. This is a beautiful book, the cover is thick heavy weight cardboard, the book is 11 ¾ inches by 8 ¼ inches and it is ¾ of an inch thick.

    7. The background colors make this book special, some are solid, some are not solid giving the background a rustic look, some are made up of multiple colors, a couple have lines in the back ground color my least favorite.

  2. I just received this coloring book today and I absolutely love it. I love the hard cover and the really strong paper it’s made out of. When I was reading reviews before there were a couple that talked about how the pages were already colored in and that made me nervous but that’s actually deceiving. The part that you color is not colored in already by another customer, it’s just background and outlining. Personally I don’t mind it but others might not like that feature. I’ve added a few photos just to show that some of the backgrounds are already colored and some are not. The third photo is just showing all of the pages as you would see it on the side.

  3. This gives me stress! I’ve had other adult coloring books for stress and they were great, but this isn’t. Most pages the entire background are colored or there is so many black, thick lines it makes it no fun to try and color. There are some really cool pictures, but they are heavily outweighed by the bad ones.

  4. I can’t stress enough how much I love this coloring book. I have purchased quite a few coloring books to help de-stress at the end of long days and have found myself even more frustrated and stressed from the intricacies of those books. This one provides just enough fun intricate designs without being overwhelming. There’s many with repetitive designs/patterns and plenty unique images. I tend to put on music and zone out to coloring. An hour or so seems to be long enough to clear my mind. I noticed that quite a few pages do have colored backgrounds or some coloring already done but this doesn’t bother me since I rarely have a color scheme in mind when I first start. I do understand why this could be frustrating to others, though. The hardback is perfect for flat surfaces so you’re not fighting to keep pages open while you color. I used both bullet point animation markers and Crayola markers to color and have not experienced any bleed-throughs at all. I would recommend this and the others by Hannah Davies.

  5. Sweet mother of all things holy. This coloring book is an escapist’s dream. I carry it with a bundle of colored pencils in my purse. Psycho much? I’m busy, and stressed, and off beat. Tell me about it. This book is therapy. Some of us need it, so thank you!

  6. I like the pictures and quality of the book/pages. However, I hate that parts of the pages have color on them already. Limits my freedom in color choices.

  7. I love these coloring books! My roommate has color therapy and I liked it so much I got creative therapy. Color therapy is separated into sections based on color which I really like and it has a lot of great doodling pages. Creative therapy is separated into a coloring section and a doodling section. I personally like the coloring pages in creative therapy better and the doodling pages in color therapy better, but they both have great pages for each.

    In the colored image attached I mostly used my Staedtler fineliners along with a few of my roommate’s Stabilo fineliners. Fineliners are excellent for both doodling and coloring in these pages.

    The fish page is an example of one of my favorite pages in the doodling section that I haven’t yet started.

    This book is unique among coloring books as it has colored backgrounds and some images are partially started for you. My roommate and I both think the pages are quite beautiful and it is one of my favorite coloring books!
