A lush Spring coloring book, much recommended! (5 stars)
I find few things more calming and soothing for my generalized anxiety disorder than sitting down with a coloring book and focusing all of my energy into the selection and placement of color. So I am always on the lookout for adult coloring books that have different themes because my moods can be pretty weird and at one moment I might enjoy coloring an intricate dragon, another a pair of shoes, and yet another I might want something funny. I don't often find one that has a very floral-centric theme that I like though, so I was very excited to get an early look at COLORING FOR ALL SEASONS: SPRING.
Filled with beautiful flowers, delightful butterflies, and sayings that are heart-warming I found this one very lovely. Since my review copy was digital I didn't actually get to color the pages but the styles of art provided an excellent variety for colorists who enjoy different types from mandalas and tangles to simple line drawings. But as an experienced colorist I'd dare say you cannot go wrong with this one based on the art alone.
If you love coloring and enjoy the Spring season I highly recommend this one! I'm looking forward to seeing what this publisher will do with the other three seasons very, very much.
