I know I’m a bit late for the whole adult coloring book trend, and by a bit I mean by a year or so.
Remember when everyone was buying those super expensive coloring books? Yeah, well I decided to save my money and not color. That is until I got these books.
I’ve found some absolute gems, and I’m here to share them with you!
Prices and Amazon Page:
These books are surprisingly great for the price you pay for them. I listed the price for each coloring book and where you can find it above. For about 7 US dollars, these books are *amazing*.
The paper is really smooth and thick, which is great because I’m not really a coloring pencils person, I tend to stick with markers, for the most part, so it’s really important to me that the paper is thick enough that my marker ink doesn’t bleed through the page.
Another helpful thing is that each coloring page is on a separate page, so even if the ink bleeds, it’s not going to ruin a whole other coloring page for you. That’s a great touch on the publisher’s part because little details like that can make or break a product.
The lines on the art are thick enough to see, but not too thick that it ruins the final piece.
Usually, when you think of coloring books, flowers, and mandalas come to mind, so seeing something like this is a nice change. I find that those really intricate designs can hurt my eyes after a while of coloring, and that’s the complete opposite of what I want to do.
The angular, geometric shapes found in the Glass Dinosaurs coloring book are perfect for when you really want to focus and get everything perfect. I think it’s such a cool idea to use dinosaurs for this because (1) the designs of the bodies differ drastically from one page to the other and (2) they’re dinosaurs, they’re not real, so you can do whatever you want with the color scheme (not that you didn’t have the freedom with any other book).
I would like to see a couple more designs, though, because this only has 20 coloring pages and is sold for almost the same amount as the other books which have 40. Even though that’s only a minor setback and I still think that this one is my second favorite next to the psychedelic topography one, which I’ll be talking about next.
If you want something a little more ‘carefree- in a way (that’s the only way I could describe it to be honest.), then the psychedelic topography coloring book is the perfect one for you. It’s smooth curves and symmetrical design completely relax me, and let me sink into whatever audiobook or song I’m listening to.
I also think it’s the most aesthetically pleasing because you fill the whole page instead of just a small piece of it like the other books. If you had to only buy one of these coloring books, then you’ll have to pick this one up.
I’ll have to admit the third book, tunnel runner, isn’t my favorite, but I’m sure a lot of people will enjoy it, as it has a lot of tenny-tiny details you can color in. If you’re the type of person who likes intricate small details, then I recommend you buy this one.
That’s all I have to say about these books, to be honest. I think they’re great and even compare to some of the more expensive coloring books you can find out there. I would %100 recommend you look into these if you’re looking for some unique coloring books.
I hope you enjoyed my little review! writing this made me remember how much I love writing reviews in general, I’ll make sure to write at least one or two a month from now on!
***Disclaimer: These books were sent to me for free in return for an honest review and I was paid to write this review, but all opinions are my own. I wouldn’t endorse a product that I did not like, and I think all of you know that. ***
