Over the summer I picked up a couple of adult coloring books. It’s nice to have options when you are coloring beside your children, or in my case, as a stress reliever.
Daria Song’s The Time Garden: A Magical Journey and Coloring Book is a beautifully illustrated coloring book. It’s the first coloring book I’ve encountered with a linear storyline. The story follows a girl who looks into a cuckoo clock and has a magical journey.
The book is beautiful and intricately illustrated. I would not recommend this for young children. This is definitely a coloring book for adults! The pages are not as thick as other adult coloring books, and the back of the page is the next image. This might be something to keep in mind if you like to rip out coloring pages to frame, or give as a gift, or to bear in mind if you’re using something like markers which might bleed through the paper.
I think there is balance to getting a coloring book to be both fun and detailed enough to color, and The Time Garden captures both.
Now, off to find my coloring pencils….
