Book

This book is a surprise – it’s hardcover for one. Having never purchased a book from the ‘Art Therapy’ series, I had no idea what to expect. The cover is thick and sturdy, with the spine sturdily in place.

The paper in the book is a lovely thick white. There are some designs that do enter the spine, and as of yet, mine has not loosened although it probably will with more use. Pages are double sided, and there was some fine spots when I used my fineliners, but this is easily covered once you colour the next page.

It is smaller than A4 but bigger than A5, and a good thickness for putting in a bag or satchel. Both front and back covers are thick and sturdy, so no need for a table or clipboard when using them.

This book takes you on a journey. The short preamble explains what forest the book is inspired by, and as you look through the book, it feels like a hidden world.

Everything from fairies, to squirrels, to floral patterns, to a wizard is in here. I see something new every time I flick through.

There is a good range of forest scenes intermingled with patterns and repetitive symbols such as dragons and unicorns. Some are double page spreads, but most images are one page.

Health

I actually think this book is perfect for anyone. There is such an amazing variety of images, from basic patterns to intricate scenes, that you are likely to find something to suit your tastes, skill, pain and concentration level.

The subject matter is one that really does inspire you and while you focus on colouring, it’s as if time melts away.

I would recommend this book to anyone – novice, experienced, pattern fan, scene fan – it is a very unique book that tells a story of a hidden world!

If you love fantasy themed colouring books, have a look at this review!
The Art Therapy series includes titles such as Mandalas, Buddhism, Aztecs and the ones I am most looking forward too – Frozen and Star Wars! (NB – Art Therapy Star Wars has now been released, read my review here.)
