This is an absolutely beautiful book of grayscale sketches. I'm fairly new to this way of coloring and as soon as I saw this book, I had to have it. I had never heard of Bennett Klein before but I will certainly be following him from this point on. The designs are beautiful and unusual, especially in grayscale where so many of the coloring books available are merely photographs instead of hand-drawn sketches.The designs are all flowing and almost lyrical in their composition. Women make up a lot of the designs, with unusual hairstyles and poses. There are animals and cultural symbols as well as some fairly hippie-vibe young women. It's just a great combination of unusual designs that will be a blast to color.I will go into detail about the book below for those who are interested; however, here is an overview of what I found:25 Hand-drawn sketches in grayscaleDesigns are printed on one side of non-perforated paperGlue BindingEasy to open to flat position for coloringDesigns do not merge into the bindingAlcohol and water-based markers bleed through the pageGel pens leave shadows of color on the back of pageColoring pencils work great with this paperThe designs are printed on thin, white, non-perforated paper. The back of the page is printed with the Colour My Sketchbook emblem. The binding is glued rather than sewn. The designs do not merge into the binding. If you choose to remove a page from the book, you will have to cut it out but will not lose any portion of the design. I could easily get the book to lay in flat position for coloring.I test my coloring books with various medium even though I generally use coloring pencils for grayscale.
