This coloring book is beautiful. There was some confusion it seems, with there being both a coloring book and also a book about Pop Manga drawing and coloring. But this was in fact the coloring book and I was SUPER excited about it. I have been coloring as an adult since before the craze and I love that it is a 'thing' now. I have even hosted 'coloring parties'. I love it!
The images throughout are super detailed and whimsical and I love all of them. The pages are a wonderful thickness and the coloring book itself is great quality. I have been coloring with colored pencils but I think that markers might be ok as well - although I have not tried yet.
The artist is wonderful and I am loving using this coloring book to de-stress and have fun. She also prefaces the book with notes about coloring and drawing and even recommends copying pages to color in different ways, which I thought was a wonderfully fun idea for color palettes.
I think that some of the images might be a little disturbing for younger colorers. There are images of half human half monster/ animals and some that look pretty evil, but I love it and think that it is a very fun coloring book.
