This is my second full size coloring book by Hannah Lynn. I somehow missed her smaller pocket size book but plan to pick that up in the near future.The designs in this book are as cute as those I have been enjoying in her first book. The girls all have big eyes and lush hair. I find the designs to be somewhat detailed but not with intricate or small spots to color. At the front of the book, the artist has included thumbnails of each of designs. I appreciate this “table of contents” as it helps me find my designs and make my coloring decisions. She has also included a few tips and hints as to ways to color with the book.There are fantasy girls such as fairies and mermaids and there are also some fun themed designs which include Alice in Wonderland and the Wizard of Oz. I have been having so much fun coloring these designs. I have been using alcohol-based markers or various brands of colored pencils and, in some cases, a combination of both markers and pencils to color my first projects.This is what I found in coloring and testing this coloring book:50 Cute Fantasy and Theme Big Eye GirlsPrinted on one side of the pagePaper is typical CreateSpace, thin, white, slightly rough and non-perforated.Glue BindingDesigns do not merge into the binding areaAll designs have framing lines around the outer edge which provides a good stopping point and finishes off all elements. I find this makes it easier for me to color and have a more finished looking project.Alcohol and water based markers bleed through this paper to some degree. Alcohol-based bleed through rapidly while water-based are more spotty on the back of the page.
Artist - Hannah LynnPages - 108BookAs my regulars know, I'm a bit of a fantasy lover - I'm always on the lookout for anything fairy, dragon, cryptozoology-related. This also means I can be a touch critical of anything fantasy related!The book is around A4 size, at 21.6cm x 28cm, which I find a great size for transporting and using at home.The cover is a glossy cardstock, complete with a collage of completed images from the book, for an outstanding effect.The spine is glue bound, which means it can withstand quite a bit of manoeuvring without pages falling out or the spine breaking. The spine is quite pliable with some use as well, which is very helpful!Images are single sided, which is fantastic - something I'm seeing more and more amongst all levels of publishers! The images also contain a very helpful border around the edge of the image, preventing the image entering the spine!The paper is not very thick, but does have a bit of texture, and works well with pencils. One of the front pages instructs you to place a few pages of copy paper behind each image, to prevent bleeding or indentation from pencils.I didn't have any problem with indentation with pencils or gel pens, and I didn't put any copy paper behind the pages I worked on.ImagesIf you are familiar with Hannah Lynns work, you will know what to expect. For those of you who aren't, imagine characters such as Rainbow Brite, Cinderella and Alice In Wonderland all grown up and ready to bring to life with colour.There are 50 images, all containing one of these women, and often a fantasy creature or two.
